Today I had the privilege of, once again, sitting under the teaching and preaching of someone who I've had the opportunity to disciple and develop over the last 5+ years.
I laughed. I cried. I learned. I fell more in love with Jesus.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again...
THERE IS MORE JOY IN DEVELOPING THAN THERE IS IN DOING.
To pass down your love, skills, and motivations to someone and then to be able to watch that person take what they've learned to impact others for the glory of God, in ways you never could, is an incredible feeling.
So satisfying. So fulfilling. So meaningful.
There are very few things that gives me a sense of purpose and meaning like developing leaders does. With this in mind, to play a small role in the "shine" of another leader is a thing I pray I never grow weary of doing.
