Able Men And Women by Kirk Hunt
So Moses heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said. And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people: rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
Exodus 18:24–25 NKJV
Despite his superior abilities and extraordinary accomplishments, Moses could not do it all alone. Given excellent advice from a trusted advisor, Moses selected able men to help him lead. Moses demonstrated that strong leaders seek out and make use of other strong leaders.
Whatever your calling or mission for the Kingdom of God, you still have human limits. You can only be in one place at a time. You are limited to 24 hours in a single day. You require sleep, food and exercise.
What is far too much for one can be spread among a group of capable folk. All it takes is for the executive leader to properly delegate tasks or responsibilities, then follow-up. While proper delegation is also work, it allows results far beyond the capabilities of a single soul. And rest for the weary executive.
Moses lived to the age of 120. And his displeasure could still scare folk. Moses lived and led so long because he enabled others to help him with the work. His good health, right to the end, was at least in part, because he did not have to it all alone.
Look around and identify the able men and women around you. Give them part of your Kingdom work. If Moses could, so can you.
Think: Am I making good use of capable men and women for the Kingdom?
Pray: “Lord, help me to share the load with Your capable men and women.”
