“By Helping Others Find Their Calling, We Fulfil Our Own”
When Moses and the people of Reuben and Gad having seen the rich pastures of the east side of River Jordan SELFISHLY said to Moses, “If we have found favor in your sight, let this land be given to your servants for a possession. Do not take us across the Jordan.” (Numbers 32:5).
Moses replied, “Shall your brothers go to the war while you sit here? Why will you discourage the heart of the people of Israel from going over into the land that the Lord has given them.” (Numbers 32:6-7).
Believers today have an obligation to help one another fulfill their calling and ministry. Thus, by not helping another obtain their inheritances, we commit the sin of selfishness and forfeit our own inheritances.
It is important in helping one another fulfill the call thus establishing God’s kingdom. No single believer holds the key to his own calling and the kingdom of God; each is just one piece of the puzzle destined to find his place among the thousands and millions of other pieces. By helping others find their calling, we fulfill our own.
