A Time to Teach, A Time to Release

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that plants anything, neither he that waters; but God that gives the increase.

2 Corinthians 9:10-12 He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God.

After I had listened to the message, this was the first thing that sprang to my mind:

Pastors, elders: turn His people loose! Let the Holy Spirit do His job! Quit keeping people spiritually dependent upon you! Let them go and do what the Lord called them to do! Take care of the babies they bring to you, then turn them loose. All glory to the Almighty, you mere servants…all of it!
