The problem is the ones who don't put much effort into their calling making my calling more difficult and time consuming. Me or my husband have been the President, Bishop, or counselor of various organizations since day one of our marriage. I'd love to teach a Primary class, but I'm always put in a "leadership" position because I am reliable. I'll never forget the day I was sustained as Primary President (with no kids of my own in Primary), and a woman came to my house and said, "My son turns 12 this week, so I'm not going to do 11-year-old Scouts anymore. Here's all my stuff.

While there are parts of our callings that just take time, it's what we do with the time that's more important. Many of our meetings or activities don't perfect the saints, support missionary work or redeem the dead. I've accomplished more in a fifteen minute "text" meeting than an hour long sit down one. We can spend hours creating handouts that end up in the trash an hour later. We could fill our time with church service and provide little meaningful service.
