In Romans 12, we find the Father giving gifts to people. Contemplating those ‘gifts’ as individual design can be eye-opening! For further information, visit the Discipleship Coaching – Design page.
Are you a Teacher?
Ezra, Luke, Mary and Isaiah are among the teacher types in Scripture. You may be a teacher if you are a research-oriented person who likes to write. Teachers hate conflict but have a quick wit and humor. They are not likely to receive new truth quickly–or reject ideas out of hand. The teacher tends not to be judgmental which makes them safe for others and not intimidating.
Even though the tendency is not to be judgmental, immature teachers have an equally challenging negative: keeping studies in the head and not melding in the heart. Teachers prefer to have the path laid out before they start and often feel unworthy of leading. Self-centered religiosity keeps the teacher from reaching their designed heights.
Teachers must learn to live out what their heads know. When they do, they blend teaching and discipline to the Body that cleanses!
