Psychologists say one of the primary causes of conflict in households involves disputes over what's generally called “division of labor.” If the bed goes unmade, if the dishes go unwashed, if the diaper goes unchanged, who is responsible for getting the job done? We’re all aware that many households have never had a calm, rational discussion about who is best equipped to do what.
I’d like to ask this question: Whose job is spiritual growth? (This really deals with what is known as the doctrine of sanctification.) For many Christians there is confusion about the division of labor as it relates to spiritual growth or sanctification. "Is it God's job, or is it mine?"
