Get Together


Exodus 18:22-23
New Living Translation (NLT)

22 They should always be available to solve the people’s common disputes, but have them bring the major cases to you. Let the leaders decide the smaller matters themselves. They will help you carry the load, making the task easier for you. 23 If you follow this advice, and if God commands you to do so, then you will be able to endure the pressures, and all these people will go home in peace.”

Congregation Participation

What could be wrong?
What could be bad?
If we got together,
Wouldn’t it make us all glad?

Just like a party,
Or a big ol’ bash,
It would make everyone happy,
And create such a splash,

Well, except for the cooks
Who prepare all the food
And maybe the musicians
Whose playing sets up the mood

Then there’s the crew
Who has to clean up the place,
I’m not really certain
But that might not be a smile on their face,

Of course, there were those
Who had to plan the whole thing,
I think the tables and chairs
Was what they had to bring

So maybe it wasn’t such a hot idea
For us to congregate,
It always seems like a whole lot of fun
If in the work you don’t have to participate

May we all share the load so that no one has too much work to do. Bless us with Your presence and keep us at peace with all.
