Devotion: Harry Shields Harry read a quote from the James Emery Church and Culture blog,
http://www.churchandculture.org/james-emery-white, entitled The Importance of Saying “NO”
Acts 6 principle – We must say no to certain things, so we as leaders can say yes to the few things that only we can do.
Acts 6:1-4 1 Now in these days when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenistst arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution.2 And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables.3 Therefore, brothers,t pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty.4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”
What things do you say no too? What things do you say yes too? Why don’t you say no more often? – Pay attention to your motives !
