Neither Born nor Made
Peter Drucker was asked about leaders once, and said:
"Most leaders I've seen were neither born nor made. They were self-made. We need far too many leaders to depend only on the naturals." (quoted in an interview with Jeffrey A. Krames, printed in "Inside Drucker's Brain" p. 203)
The same is true for Bible teachers! No one is born a Bible teacher. And without work on your part, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, no one can make you into a Bible teacher.
And like Drucker's example of leaders, we need MANY more Bible teachers! Check out these free resources for Bible teachers, part of our initiative to develop 400,000 more Bible teachers by 2021.
