  • Several years ago, I read a quote by Christian author John Maxwell that said, “Leadership is more caught than taught.” I liked it and decided to adapt it to say “Christian discipleship is more caught than taught.”

  • I love watching TV shows where an expert comes to a person’s home or business in dire need and helps them turn around.
    Sometimes the expert yells at the person and the person pushes back, resenting the expert’s help, and it’s all high drama on camera. Bad words bleeped out, someone walks out in a huff, sometimes the whole thing is called off.
    Sometimes it ends with the person undoing whatever good the expert has done, which is usually a mistake because at the end of the show you find out that two months later the business is no longer in business.
