We have learned that you and I should not say yes, to when we should say no. There are some things we just have no business pursuing, even good things. Consider the life of Elijah it took three different leaders to successfully manage the political aspects of his job description. You will notice that God did not call Elijah to any of those tasks but God called him to be a spiritual leader. We learned that you and I really need to know our boundaries so we do not live depleted lives. Today, we head back to 1 Kings 19, verse 15, with a look at the next step: Do not hold on to what you should be letting go of. How do we do this?
