As a leader, your goal is not just to increase the knowledge of those you lead, but to help them grow in wisdom and understanding. By instructing and inspiring them to dig deeper into Scripture, you can help them access its power to change their hearts and lives.

*These ideas are unpacked in more detail in my book Deeper into the Word: Reflections on 100 Old Testament Words. (Bethany House, 2011).
