We leave to go to Alabama in the morning. There is so much to do.
- Wash the car
- Fill it with gas.
- Buy supplies.
- Write Sunday's life group lessons
- Prep Sunday services.
- Get marketing ready for Family Fun Day.
- Make sure room reservations are confirmed.
- Go home and pack.
- Print the Sunday morning brochures.
And on, and on, and on, and on.
How can I do it all? I don't do it all. I have a team.
The Red Carpet team of greeters and ushers. The WOW team of worship leaders and the A/V team. Life Group teachers, Voltage Youth, The custodial team, The Children's Ministries Team and more!
They are the reason why I can take a Sunday off and go pick up my daughter in Alabama.
Who is on your team?
Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Some people try to control every aspect of their lives. They end up micro managing others and driving people away.
Some people try to manipulate others to do what they want, rather than inspiring people to a common goal or vision.
Trust is the key. You have to trust the people around you to do their best. Perfection isn't the goal here. Relationship is. I trust my team. How about you?
PRAY: Dear Jesus, help me to trust the people you have placed in my life. AMEN
