We all have to admit that it is easier to shrug off responsibility to someone else. It's easier to sit and point than get up, engage, and find your place of involvement. Many times in the church we expect someone....the pastor, a teacher, or a person placed in charge.... to do whatever it is which needs to be done. The problem with that is this: If we are part of a church then each person, each need, each concern, and each challenge presents an opportunity for me to be involved in what God is doing in my church. Instead of condemning the person we think should do something, we must help build up the church by taking initiative to be part of the solution. Each person in the church can help make the church better than it ever could be when only one person was expected to do it all.
