Moses' father-in-law said, "This is no way to go about it. You'll burn out, and the people right along with you. This is way too much for you—you can't do this alone. Exodus 18:17 (MSG)
Moses was a great leader, but he was given to human faults and issues like all of us. It sometimes seems easier to just do something myself than to take the time to teach others to do it and risk the problems which will likely arise. But, like Moses, I can only do that for so long before I burn out – then everyone loses.
Self-sufficiency and rugged individualism are admirable traits in the right circumstances, but our greatest strengths easily become tragic weaknesses. As tasks grow, we need to trust and rely on the strengths of others.
