Reflections: Administration and organising


"Joseph's master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD caused all that he did to prosper in his hands. So Joseph found favour in his sight and attended him; he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had. From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; the blessing of the LORD was on all that he had, in house and field."

Genesis 39 v3-5

Throughout the Old Testament we find figures like Joseph, Moses and Nehemiah who were called to deal with the organisational side of life. In the New Testament, Paul spent a lot of time collecting money and setting criteria for leaders that would make sure the churches ran smoothly.

There are lots of jobs that happen behind the scenes in the church- keeping the accounts, managing property repairs, dealing with groups that use our space, or organising the rotas that help our events run smoothly. Do we think of these as gifts? Do we consider them as part of our worship?

Give thanks for those who serve God through organisational gifts.
