There are so many opportunities to serve that those of us who truly have a heart to serve have to be careful, or we can do more harm than good. If we're not careful, we could be walking in the PRESUMPTION that God will equip and empower us, without knowing for sure that we're actually CALLED. If we're doing the wrong thing (or the right thing at the wrong time or with the wrong people) we might be walking in the PRESUMPTION that God will equip us, without knowing for sure that we're actually CALLED. Let's be careful to always walk fully in God's calling and serve well as leaders. KEY TAKEAWAYS Choose wisely who and when you serve. Don't PRESUME God will equip you for something without first confirming that He's CALLED you to it. Be careful how you set expectations for yourself and others.
