DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 1:1-17; Psalms 96:1-98:9; Acts 24:24-25:12

And when Moses’ father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone. Exodus 18:14

In an assembly of the Lord’s people, gifts are given to each member by the risen Lord. How sad it is when one person or one family appears to be burdened with all the responsibility. Conversely let us make sure we play our part by delegating where necessary. We might well be surprised to discover who is willing to take up the reins. —Brian Russell

We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bare,
And often for each other flows,
A sympathising tear. —John Fawcett
