Emptying your cup

With the school holidays winding up today I've spent the last two weeks knocking off a few books from the every expanding stack-of-books-I've-been-meaning-to-read.

One book I've been looking forward to reading was Deep & Wide by Andy Stanley.

And the book was good. But if you've read enough blogs and articles which he has written then there wasn't a lot of new ground.

But one point of this blog is to write things down, even if they might not be game-changing ideas, in order to be reminded of them later.

And the thought which has hounded me from reading Deep & Wide?

When you're training others, it is not your job to fill their cup, it is your responsibility to empty yours.

You need to drain and dredge up everything you've learnt, experienced and reflected upon, hoarding nothing back for yourself.
