2 Samuel 9-11

9 When Joab saw that the battle was set against him both in front and in the rear, he chose some of the best men of Israel and arrayed them against the Syrians. 10 The rest of his men he put in the charge of Abishai his brother, and he arrayed them against the Ammonites. 11 And he said, “If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me, but if the Ammonites are too strong for you, then I will come and help you. 12 Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the Lord do what seems good to him.”

Having a strategy is not discounting the Lord’s sovereignty. We’re all gifted differently and have had different levels of success in different situations. To divide up the task the Lord has given you is a wise thing. No one can do it all, and we each play our role in the overall plan of God. Find your niche and work at it… but don’t forget your brothers and sisters, they may need your help from time to time.

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
