The Disciple Maker

I once heard it said that "discipleship is like one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread."

That statement is huge for me and here is why; its humble. The beauty of that statement is not that the disciple maker is polished, it is that he has the answer that sustains life. The disciple maker is not a person of importance or authority, higher rank, or wealth. The disciple maker is weathered by life, on the same level and willing to teach the things he knows to the next guy. Discipleship bleeds humility. Disciple making looks as if we are equal in life only separated by maturity spiritually, with a willingness to lead in a way in which I hope you surpass me.
(I do apologize if that thought was confusing and incomplete but that is as best as I can communicate it right now. It is raw and fresh in my mind and you just got it.)

James 4:10 reads as follows: "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."

I want to lead out humbly making disciples. That is my prayer.

I like that thought about discipleship. I have had similar thoughts about sharing in the community of Christ. It is not those who have giving to those who have not, but it is all mutual sharing. and those who have not bread, have wisdom, have love and have other valuable things to share.

Rob Bell uses the metaphor of the joy we find in jumping on a trampoline and desiring to share that with others. I like the idea of it being something we do as equals.

I thought it was "evangelism" that was one beggar telling another where to find bread. Hmm. What you shared is thought provoking.
