“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.”  Acts 6:3

All to often in churches, people put their hands in so many pots.  And not just that but they want to lead it all.  Even pastors, will want to be in control of everything which can create depletion in their preaching.

God gifts people with many different talents. 

He also gives us a heart for things, as well, they may coincide or they may not.  I believe you are to do what God called you to do.  In most cases you are to be a part of the leadership for what He has called you to do.  There are also things that you have a heart for and I think it is truly acceptable to help in those areas.  Help means not to lead or take on a ton of responsibility because it can cause you to lack in your called area.

I was called to teach, more specifically teach the Bible.

Knowing that He has called me to teach, I spend a good majority of my time mentoring.  I work at learning new things and teaching what I have learned.  Seeking wisdom in your calling will help you become the person God called you to be.

Although I am capable of doing multiple things, I shouldn’t do them.  My focus is on teaching the Word of God because there are others called to do the other things.  When you place yourself in a position you were not called to, you become a warm body filling a spot of the chosen.
