Leadership development is one of those buzz words that gets tossed around along with mentoring and raising up leaders and delegating. Okay, maybe they all aren’t buzz words, but the point is still in there somewhere.
Once again, while reading in John (I promise…I read other things too like Psalms, Proverbs, and even Zechariah lately!), I saw something that stuck out in a ohhhh that’s cool kind of way because yes, I do talk out loud sometimes when reading the bible.
Now, if you’re still reading….here’s the part:
“Therefore when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were)…” John 4:1-2
Well, now, look at that. Right from the beginning, Jesus set into motion a leadership style where his disciples got right in on the action and were learning hands-on. I love that! Getting right in the foray of life alongside Jesus rather than just watching. Just a thought…I’m sure there’s more packed in that little parentheses-ed part, but that’s the little nugget that stuck out today.
What has stuck out in what you’ve been reading?
p.s. it’s friday!!!!
