A daily dose of spiritual exercise for men in various stages of their Christian walk

As a manager, there are few things more frustrating than assigning a task and coming back later only to find out that nothing has been accomplished. My job is to delegate tasks efficiently, coordinate the disparate pieces, and help put it all together to accomplish something larger. I’m usually not doing frontline work, but I’m taking care of logistics so those guys don’t have to.

To be good at my job, though, I need people to do the job they are asked to do. I hate coming back to find out that some guy has been twiddling his thumbs because he had a question or disagreement or, my favorite, “I just wasn’t feeling it.” On the other side, I love asking how it’s going and getting the response, “It’s done.” There’s no, “Well, we had a problem,” or, “It’s mostly done.” There’s something exhilarating to just hearing the task is accomplished. That allows me, as a manager, to keep the ball rolling and coordinate the events that get the overall project and vision moving forward. Those guys may not always know how they fit in, but they know that if they do the jobs given to them, good things happen.

I love finding how to reflect these lessons back on myself. God is my manager. He has assigned me tasks that don’t always make sense in the big picture. But, I’ve learned that if I don’t do them, everything slows down. If I do the work, bigger things happen.

“As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him.” Proverbs 10:26

“Like the coolness of snow at harvest time is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the spirit of his masters.” Proverbs 25:13

If I drag my feet and wring my hands at the tasks given to me, I’m just slowing down the plans God has for me. If I take the job seriously and do it well, I’m keeping the wheels greased and helping things move along.

I figure I’ll just keep working hard and trying to open doors and He will guide my path. I’ll just try to be manageable.

“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:6

“I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.” Proverbs 4:11
