Mark 6:7 – Jesus called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits.
Delegating tasks, sharing the work load with others, is a requirement for successful organizations to thrive. Yet I must admit that in my own work, too often I have been slow to allow others gifts to shine through. Jesus sent his disciples out in pairs. The example Jesus offers is one that starts with partnership, with collaboration.
Loving God, give us the wisdom and confidence to value the talents and gifts of all of those around us. Amen.
