Numbers 11:14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.

No pastor, missionary, or leader can bear all the people in his ministry. God fully intended for you to train other men to help you. That is what happens in

Acts 6:1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

when the apostles choose men to help them. That is what happens when Moses later chooses men to divide his responsibility. Also

Ephsians 4:11-12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

we are taught to train men and women to do the ministry. Get out from under so much burden. Train some people to help you. You are not a success until you have made another a success.

    Amen, Pastor. The challenge is, people who aren’t willing to serve. God bless

      no doubt. There is a problem on both sides I am sure. Some pastors won’t share the ministry and other people won’t accept the opportunity!
