Do You Disciple?

Do You Disciple?

From A 5th Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Do You Disciple?

After teaching a lesson tomy kindergarten class on Jesus and his disciples, I was feeling quite proud. It was a model lesson, an A, and included a game, a song and a story.

At the conclusion of the lesson, I opened the discussion to questions. With pride, I looked out at my students’ wildly waving arms. My lesson was obviously a success. Teaching seemed so rewarding. I would now let them shower me with this new knowledge that I had so skillfully imparted to them.

I called on Brittney to respond. Since her arm was waving more frantically than the rest, surely her observation would be that much more brilliant. “Brittney, what do you have to say about Jesus and his disciples?” I asked eagerly.

“Well,” she began, with true kindergarten confidence, “I just wanted you to know that I know a lot about disciples ’cause at my house we disciple everything. We have a special disciple can for plastic, a special disciple can for glass, and a special disciple can for paper. My mom says it’s how we save the earth.”

I paused, took a deep breath and said, “Let’s get ready for lunch.”
