Assigning Responsibility
By: Rick Boxx
August 21, 2014

When I have a project that only requires my expertise I can easily focus on producing an excellent outcome. When a project requires an entire team, however, achieving excellence becomes much more complex.

A team has multiple people with different thoughts, experiences, and ideas on how something should be completed. To make matters even more complicated team leaders, including myself, often forget the simple step of assigning responsibility for a desired outcome.

In Numbers 18:1, “The LORD said to Aaron, “You, your sons and your family are to bear the responsibility for offenses connected with the sanctuary.”

God knew someone specifically needed to be assigned the responsibility of caring for the sanctuary. If you desire your team to excel, don’t forget to expressly assign responsibility to someone, then hold them accountable.
