When preparing others to teach the disciple now curriculum you have chosen or really doing anything in ministry, we usually like to challenge others. We like to push them, cast our vision, and make sure they are doing what is necessary to reach the goal that we have set. But are you taking those challenges yourself? Are you doing what you are asking them to or are you just merely spouting off words and then sitting back and doing nothing? You need to make sure that if you are going to challenge someone to do something then you must be willing to do it yourself. If you challenge a leader to study you must study the same thing also. If you challenge someone to study read a passage of scripture you must do it also. This is real and effective leadership and is something we all must do if our ministries are going to grow and be successful.
