Oftentimes, when we think about helping people to grow, we attend to key things that can be poured into someone’s life. We think of activities, experiences, classes, etc.
But for me, while all of those things have been important, I can think of two or three key people who have influenced my life in far more penetrating ways than any other influence. So, here is a question I’d like to ask as I think about how we help people grow:
Who is your biggest influence? That is, who is the person or people who have influenced your life with God most deeply and why?
