CREATING “MARGIN” IN OUR LIVES

In the early church, it was quickly becoming impossible for the apostles to do everything that was expected of them. They were overwhelmed by the many requests for their service. Recognizing they were being stretched beyond the limit, they delegated some of their responsibilities to Godly men able to handle those demands. They chose Stephen and others to perform day-to-day service, so they could create the “margin” needed in their lives to devote “to prayer and to the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4).

How often do you forsake prayer and ministry to attend to the demands of others? Is there an opportunity to delegate?

Forsaking time with God, even when you spend that time on family, can leave you empty and ineffective. Take care of your spiritual health so you will be strong when difficult times come.

Acts 6:2-3
