There’s a very simple way to help others grow spiritually. I’m going to tell you how after a quick story.
Recently my phone buzzed with a notification, and I found this message: “Hey man, I’m just about 45 pages into your book, but I am convinced this is a God-given piece of provision for me as I slowly tiptoe into pastoring. Thank you for entrusting me with your work.”
So many feelings rushed in. Excitement and gratitude. Awe. I glanced at my shelves filled with books. Some of them walked me through a crisis. Others shaped my thinking about God or nudged me toward a healthier life. Pages full of impact. My words were doing this for someone else. Simply amazing.
Then I had a thought. Every one of those books was in my life because someone told me about it.
