There’s a clever young guy named Somebody Else. There’s nothing this guy can’t do. He is busy from morning to way late at night just substituting for you. You’re asked to do this or you’re asked to do that, and what is your ready reply? Get Somebody Else to do that job; he’ll do it much better than I. So much to do in this weary old world-so much and workers are few. Somebody Else, all weary and worn, is still substituting for you. The next time you’re asked to do something worthwhile, just give this ready reply: “If Somebody Else can give time and support, my goodness, so can I.”
Stop giving Somebody Else your job. Become a servant and watch what God will do for you, because He can also do it through you. You will discover it really is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).
