Never underestimate the strength that there is in a helper. For some reason, we feel as if we’re unsuccessful unless we’re doing everything all the time, a sort of Superman complex that has robbed us of our ability to ask, “Hey, you’re really gifted at this, would you mind helping me?”
I was recently reminded of this in 2 ways. The first way is a positive example. I delegated an important, repeating task to a church member who has done a fantastic job. It has reflected well on both her as a member and me as a leader.
Don’t neglect the gifted people that God has placed around you. They may be there to multiply your productivity, help you grow in humility, or simply to be a friend.
