One of the greatest things a leader can give his staff is the permission and thefocus to not do everything. You don’t need to create outlets for every need out there. When we get to busy with the “everything” we lose the focus of the “one thing.” What is the one thing you are most passionate about? Find that thing and run, don’t look back, don’t even look to the side, run as hard, and as fast as you can forward. Put all your energy, all your time, all your passion into making that one thing great. And when you find yourself at a crossroads in your leadership, when you find that that one thing begins to branch into other things, empower others.

Christ could have spent his entire life healing people, or bringing people back from the dead. he could have spent years of his life performing miracle after miracle after miracle, and in the process He could have made alot of people very happy, wealthy and healthy. So why did Jesus not spend the vast amount of His time doing this? Because this is not the reason He came. He specifically came to, “seek and save that which is lost.”

In fact what Christ spent the most time dong was leading and empowering others, one in the same I believe. He knew that if His message was to truly become successful He must pour His life into others. Otherwise when He left, His message would follow suit shortly after.

You are too busy doing ministry and not reaching people
