The Math doesn’t add up

 “And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.” Matthew 28:17 ESV

Most of us doubt we can add value to others or make disciples. However, we must remember that leadership is influence, and everyone influences someone else. 

Our doubt also comes because we lack an understanding of what we are accomplishing. The math doesn't add up when we add value to other people.

John Maxwell's book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership contains several “I thought” statements. Here are a few of these statements that jumped out at me: 

  • “I thought adding value to others was what I should do: But I got a heart that valued people.” 

  • “I thought adding value to help others be successful was personal: But it was contagious.” 

  • “I thought adding value would have little return: But I discovered the return was amazing.”

When intentional about making disciples, we are not just improving one life. We are improving the lives of those they, in turn, disciple as well. One plus one does not equal one. 1 + 1 = unknown.

Therefore, start adding value to one person, a.k.a. disciple someone, and let the Lord handle how many lives that impacts!

Go, outlive your limits!
