Life-on-Life Discipleship

Intentionally investing in others
Page 2 of 2

Let's make this practical. Who are the one, two, or three people you could make more intentional investments in? And don't tell me there's no one with potential. That's just weak leadership. Remember, we have to make disciples, not find them. Got their names in mind? Write them down. Now, think about a conversation you could have with each of them that would help them take the next step forward in growth. Think of a shared experience that could turn into a teachable moment. And think of a way to set them up to experience a win and celebrate it.
