Preface

“Once upon a time there were four men named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. But Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it. But Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about it, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, and Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody and Nobody did the job that Anybody could have done in the first place. At last report, these four men were still arguing and the job they were supposed to do still wasn’t done” (Author unknown).

How many times are you guilty of leaving undone the things that you are capable of doing yourself because you have the mentality that “somebody else can do it”? Perhaps you think that someone else is more qualified than you are to do the job. Perhaps you think that you have done your fair share and that it is now someone else’s turn. Perhaps you are not all that engaged in the work that you are capable of doing because you take for granted the fact that somebody else will volunteer for the work.

This lesson is designed to serve as a warning to you if you possess this mindset – particularly toward the work of God. God has enough work to do that He can use the full participation of everyone who desires to follow Him!

One Day, God will judge you for how you have accomplished the work He has given you to do.

In this lesson, I want to warn you about the mentality that says, “Somebody else can do it” – and encourage you to adopt a very different mentality toward the work that God has given you to do.
