Dirty Diapers and Discipleship

Dirty Diapers and Discipleship

Thoughts From Fab:

I’m not a mom, so, stop me if I’m wrong, but I’m guessing that maybe sometimes it’s hard to see changing diapers as discipleship.
I work for a church. I run a program that develops women. I have weekly appointments to counsel women and I teach classes about the gospel. It’s easy for me to see ‘discipleship’ stamped on my day.

But what is discipleship, really? It’s meeting someone where they are and helping them conform morefully to the truths of God revealed in Christ. And if that’s true, there are some crazy things you should know about the human brain that might change how you view diaper changing.

The time for discipleship starts when you are saved. Everyone starts somewhere, and starting with Biblical discipleship will create a firm foundation for new believers.
