Teach What You Know
At the last Protege Huddle of the 2009-2010 class, I shared some final thoughts on leadership. I encouraged them to always pass something on to others.
In 2 Timothy 2:2, Paul instructed Timothy, "You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others."
Those of us who follow Christ today do so because the Church in the 1st century dared to do just that. To pass the faith on from generation to generation to generation.
Discipleship is not some difficult process that only highly trained people can do. Nor is it a sterile flowchart of linear instruction. Discipleship happens when one person passes on what they know to someone else. No matter where you are in your spiritual growth, you've learned something or experienced something that might help someone else. Always look for someone you can invest in. If you are praying for someone to mentor you, look for someone you can mentor.
