I’m a busy guy. As a pastor I have several appointments with people in the church almost every day, meetings with other church leaders and preparation for upcoming messages. And this morning I read about the disciples casting lots to pick the replacement disciple for Judas. Casting lots? Does that sound strange to anybody else? Jesus could tell the future and here his guys are casting lots.
But in my busy life, I had to admit, I probably would find a quick answer like they did. It’s a lot harder and more time consuming to wait on God. Not only that but what if he wants you to wait and people (like your spouse or your boss) are expecting a decision? It’s not like you can just say, “I haven’t heard from God yet.” Or can you?
Here’s a question I’m not supposed to ask. It’s a dangerous question: what do pastors get paid to do? I’m not trying to justify my employment, but prioritize the time God’s given me. So what do you think?
