Today’s Challenge to Christian Teachers

The goal of teaching someone to climb mountains is more than teaching mechanics of climbing. The teacher equips the student with all the nuances of safety and planning as well as appreciation of the splendor at the top. God empowers all believers to serve with their gifts and not just to listen to teaching. Teachers must help keep the body of Christ in balance, and George urges teachers not to get so wrapped up in brilliant teaching as an end in itself, but to realize it is the means for the Body to be equipped to use their spiritual gifts to serve.

Listening Is an Attribute of the Servant-Leader

Bats and owls have the best hearing in the animal kingdom. They can hear, but if they are not listening and paying attention they will go to bed without their dinner. Listening is deciding that the other person is important, and what that important person is saying is more important than what you are doing. Listening, coupled with periods of reflection, is essential to the growth and well-being of the servant-leader as well as the organization.

Discipleship of the emerging leader is as crucial as a lion nurturing his offspring or a father his child, but it goes deeper than a father to child relationship. It is much broader than teaching skills or fine-tuning character. Malcolm has written a letter that goes straight to the heart of discipleship and what emerging leaders need from those more experienced leaders.
