I have had the honor and privilege to lead a group of 10th graders this school year in a religious ed class on Sundays at our church.
It has an amazing year. I have enjoyed learning so much about them, learning with them, and learning from them.
The other teacher/leader and I had a desire to share with them about how the Holy Spirit works in our life. And how to become an intentional disciple.
Next Sunday is our last Sunday together. My heart is heavy because I have grown quite fond of these amazing young individuals who I won’t see next year because I will not be here.
But…..my heart was bursting on Sunday when I shared with them how leaders are readers…..and being an intentional disciple is being a leader. I had brought in 2 large bags full of many different types of spiritual growth books. I had them spend 15 minutes of picking out the ones that resonated with them to take their faith growth to the next level. To pick out books that would connect them to the journey they are in right now with their faith so they could become even more intentional about their discipleship for Christ.
I loved seeing the motivation and determination they had as they sifted through the books and sat with the ones they had picked and really dug into them!
What does leading mean to you? Are you motivated to be an intentional disciple!?
Sit with this…..pray about it…..write about it…..share below about it! Let’s connect :)…..
Many hugs and blessings always dear followers….family….friends….
