Jethro’s frank acknowledgment of God’s supremacy and loving-kindness was extremely beautiful. Oh, for more wisdom to discern, and humble reverence to acknowledge the divine goodness wherever we encounter it. His advice also was most wise. It is far better to set a thousand people to work than attempt to do the work of a thousand. The greatest and most useful men are those who know how to rely on others work for which these are quite competent, while they concentrate themselves on matters of the highest moment, which the others cannot undertake. Thus character is created. It is the highest service of all to bring men’s requests and causes to God, and then to show them the way in which they should walk and the work they should do. In the best sense this is what Jesus does for us all. We are all called and commissioned to be Ambassadors of Christ. It doesn’t just fall on the Pastors, Deacons, or any other office in the church – it falls on all who believe. Are you being and living as an Ambassador of Christ or are you just waiting for someone else to do it? We are in this together for His honor and His glory.
PRAYER – Lord, here I am! I sometimes feel that I have nothing tangible to offer. But I have You and with You, I am more than I was without You. Help me to see You have placed a calling on my life. In Jesus name, Amen.
