Letting go

Sometimes we value people – and what they do – so much, that we can find it very hard to let them go. They literally become ‘irreplaceable’ – at least in our own minds. There’s no doubt that Saul and Barnabas were valued and needed in the church at Antioch – but God had other plans for them. And those plans required openness on everyone’s part – Barnabas and Saul to respond to the call; the rest of the group to let them go. Being able to say ‘yes’ is both a challenge and a gift.
