2 Timothy 2:2  (NLT)

2 You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.

 Notice the generations here.  Paul says I gave it to you, Timothy … Timothy, you’re to give it to reliable leaders … and they’re supposed to give it to other people.  There’s 4 generations in that verse—Paul, Timothy, reliable leaders, others.  Friends, that’s what The PEACE Plan is all about.

 I’m teaching you how to do some things.  You’re going to teach other Christians how to do some things.  And they’re going to teach others and they’re going to teach others.  That’s how the multiplication process works.  

 Let’s get real practical right now.  Let me show you how to do this.  Let’s take these 3 areas of The PEACE Plan – Personal peace, Local peace, and Global peace.  How would you practice being a servant leader in a Personal peace plan?  Showing people how.  Here’s what I would suggest you do.  Sit down sometime this week and make a list of the things you’re good at.  What are you good at?  What do you like to do?  Your hobbies?  Your skills?  A lot of things you’re good at you don’t even know you’re good at.  You think everybody else is good at it … but they aren’t.  (Need help with this we work together on this in STEP 3 of our discipleship program.

 Some of you are really good at organizing your closet and you think that’s easy … everybody’s good at it!  No way!  That’s a gift.  You’re good at it and you figure the things you’re good at everybody else is too.  But they’re not.  You have lots of skills and gifts that you’re good at.  Most people have never sat down and done a talent assessment of their life.  What am I good at and what do I love to do?  If you love to do it then you’re most likely going to get good at it because you’re rarely good at something you don’t like to do.  

 Then once you make a list of the things you’re good at and you know how to do… I know how to balance a budget … I know how to crochet … I know how to close a deal … I know how to cook a perfect Traeger prime rib … and on and on and on.  Then what happens you say, “Who do I know that would like to know what I know?”  That’s called leadership.  Servant leaders show us how.  They don’t just do it.  They pass it on.  They don’t keep a secret what they’re good at, they give it away!  So you ask, What do I know how to do and who could I share it with?
