Discipleship is an intentional decision to invest in the life of someone else…

…and to allow someone else to invest in us.

It takes time …

It can be uncomfortable …

It is hard …

We may feel unworthy …

Or it’s just not the right time …


  • We are called to purposefully to disciple or be discipled.
  • It is a guarantee that we will have successors once we are gone. What are we going to leave them with?
  • We rub off on to others whether we like it or not.

The question is how much and what parts are we rubbing off?

Today we will continue in our passage and learn from Elisha and Elijah and what their discipleship relationship looked like. Elijah intentionally poured into Elisha. It was not on accident or by default. He did so on purpose. Let’s make it our goal to carve our names on hearts before we start thinking about carving our names on our tombstones.

Ask yourself this:

What are you doing right now to invest and pour into someone else life?

Are you allowing someone to speak into your life?

Why or why not?
