Earlier this week I spent two hours with some young disciples of Jesus. I’m guessing they were between 18 and 30 and the leader was in his mid fifties.
The young people had such a hunger for God. For more of God.
They were attentive to everything I was sharing. They asked questions. They “leaned into” the material I was teaching and interacted with it and with me.
It was an amazing two hours that blessed me and super-charged me.
I felt encouraged and excited. Not drained and depleted as I often do after teaching.
When people are hungry for more of God it is so exciting to teach.
When they are not hungry it is like dragging a dead horse uphill all the way. An effort and very unrewarding for the teacher. For me.
