The work of judging the people in every small matter was too much for Moses to do alone. Jethro, his father-in-law, advised him to not shoulder all this responsibility by himself but rather to delegate part of it to others. And so he did. (Exodus 18)
In the early church when the need arose for someone to administer to the needs of certain Grecian widows, the twelve said, “It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.” And so, seven men were selected to look after that matter. This freed the twelve to give their attention to the word of God and prayer. (Acts 6)
God has seen fit to organize the church in a way so that responsibilities can be divided up. God has set elders in the church as the overseers and spiritual leaders of the flock. He has also seen fit to have men appointed as deacons in order that they may have certain parts of the Lord’s work delegated to them.
Be looking out among the congregation for those men whom we should select and appoint as additional deacons.
