“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Ben Franklin
No matter what age group, this thought has application.
As parents raising children, how powerful to think about training children by involving them. Far too often, the television and video games become the tool of choice to keep children occupied. Leadership means a step up to engage children by getting them involved so they learn.
As educators, the same lesson applies. The tendency is to simply lecture, providing information. We have become a society good at giving the facts. However, what is missing is application, and even more so, the involvement of students in the learning process.
As spiritual leaders within the church, we need to learn the value of this thought in helping the church move out of complacency and apathy. People will not learn if the only exchange is by telling them. In most cases, people forget before they reach their car.
Let us take leadership to a new level, involving others to learn. Engage others in application of the biblical and godly principles that bring growth.
