Shortcuts are Dangerous

God spoke to me and reminded me today a ancient lesson that is worth blogging:

TRAIN A FEW, REACH MANY.

There are no shortcuts to discipleship, in forming a great team. You build your church like how a farmer plants. He waits for it to grow. As tempted am I to pirate great talents outside – the best way to build a team is still training from the inside.

Same goes with discipleship. It takes time. It requires effort and sacrifice. There is no shortcut to leadership. There are no shortcuts to discipleship. This is how God designed church and discipleship.

I could still hear the word of a wise teacher echoing as I write this entry-

“Shortcuts are dangerous”.
