What are you doing to and for your coaches that you want them to pass on to leaders? I know you know by now that that’s how it works. Whatever you want to happen at the member level, will have to happen to the leader first…and by extension, whatever you want to happen at the leader level, will have to happen to your coaches first. See also, Life-Change at the Member Level.
See where this is going?
And that leads to two observations:
- Someone is going to have to do the right things to and for your coaches (that would be you).
- If you want the right things to happen at the member level, you’re going to have to do the right things to and for your coaches.
What do you need to do to and for your coaches? I think Dallas Willard was on to a very good way to say it: “How to live the life of Jesus.”
And that leads to this challenging and convicting line:
“Our most serious failure today is the inability to provide effective practical guidance as to how to live the life of Jesus.” p. 110, The Spirit of the Disciplines
Ready to do that? It’s our job.
