Acts 6:3-4 ” Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”

You think you can do it all…but you can’t.  Within the early Church the apostles found themselves in the same predicament.  So they did a very wise thing…they delegated.  Yes, delegation can be difficult, but it’s a necessary part of good, sound ministry.   The apostles knew what their job was…prayer and preaching, so they appointed suitable candidates in areas they weren’t called to.  That’s because they knew wise delegation could only strengthen the ministry as a whole.
