Scripture Reading: Lk 10: 1-9
Delegation is more difficult than it sounds. Delegation is especially difficult for talented and extraordinary leaders, and even more difficult for leaders who seem to have a special calling from God.
That was the case with Moses some 13 centuries before Christ. After successfully leading the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt toward freedom in the Promised Land, Moses had problems with a somewhat rebellious and cantankerous group.
So he complained to God, “I am not able to carry all these people alone, the burden is too heavy for me” (Numbers 11:14). In fact, Moses was so discouraged he asked God to kill him unless he helped him.
