My wife and I have been leading teams of Young Life leaders for the last several years. This year, she’s pregnant with twins. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that she can’t have the same expectations for herself as a volunteer team leader. As a result, we’ve had a lot of conversations about delegation.
If you’re a perfectionist (like my wife), delegation can feel like a personal failure. Let me assure you, it’s not.
Delegation is an important part of a healthy ministry and a key ingredient of discipleship. Delegating doesn’t mean you’re an incompetent leader or have a bad work ethic. It shows you care about what’s best for your ministry.
Here are eight reasons to delegate:
As you well know, many of the New Testament books were originally composed as epistles or letters. Paul sent letters to the churches in Corinth, Philippi, Colossae, and so on. It’s easy, however, to lose sight of the “epistolary form” with the addition of chapter and verse numbers, pericope headings, text formatting, etc.
Fortunately for us, our Logos Bible Software contains a feature called Bible Text Only allowing us to hide these extra-biblical markings and thus read letters as letters.
Do you think you’ll buy a commentary set in the next year? What about a Bible encyclopedia or other reference work? In the next twelve months, do you think you’ll buy a few theological resources?
If you plan on buying any biblical or theological resources in the next year, take a minute to consider a Logos 7 library or base package. Why? You’d be hard pressed to find a more affordable way to purchase hundreds of biblical and theological resources. On average, you’ll save around 90% compared to purchasing all the titles separately. And often you can get a base package for less than the price of purchasing just a few of your favorite collections individually. (Check out this post to see what I mean.)

At Faithlife, our team works hard to create and distribute the best Bible study resources available—but we put out so many each year it’s hard to pick our favorites.
The great news is, we don’t have to. We’ve pulled together a list of the best resources from 2016—not our picks, but yours. The products featured are the fan favorites: the best-selling, most-wishlisted, highest-rated, most-read resources from 2016. Take a look at last year’s favorites, as determined by you, our excellent customers.
I’ve come to realize that in order to know the Bible there is no replacement for reading the entire thing.
I’m going to give three reasons why you need to aim to read even the portions of the Bible you somehow rarely get around to—and why I myself continue to reread the Bible even though I’ve already marked it “read” on Goodreads.
Give poor Obadiah and Nahum some love. Actually try to divine some intent behind genealogies rather than skipping them (hint: it’s there).

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.”
John Piper’s voluminous writing ministry is really just a series of expansions on that singular theme. With every book he publishes, Piper explores yet another implication of that potent idea—a philosophy he (somewhat cheekily) calls “Christian Hedonism.” The Crossway John Piper Collection (39 vols.) (on sale now through January 31) includes some of Piper’s most popular works related to Christian Hedonism—as well as a few gems you might never have heard of.
Here are just three highlights from the collection that you’ll want to read cover to cover.
