Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been disappointed by the fact that many of those who expressed a liking for his ideas did not bother to show up and vote for him. Many people have been attracted to Bernie’s socialist agenda that offers lots of “free stuff” like college and health care. However, these people have not shown up in great numbers at the polls.
This turn of events should not be surprising. Those who do not want face their duty to pay their own way would not be likely to take seriously their responsibility to vote. If you recruit irresponsible supporters, you have to live with the results.
In the church, we need to recruit reliable people to do the work of the Lord.
“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”—2 Timothy 2:2.
