Why do we keep doing it? We try to cram everything someone could possibly someday need to know into their orientation or training. We overload them with information, and their practice doesn’t have a chance to catch up. Essentially, we are educating people beyond their obedience. We teach them to pre-think everything before they act at all. Instead, we need to give them just enough to get started—bite-sized pieces. That approach allows them to learn experientially as they go, providing the needed content a little at a time as it’s needed.
How could you apply this idea to, say, discipleship?
