A true disciple is evidenced not by how much he or she knows but by how much he or she obeys. (Kip Cone, pastor)
Every leader—whether religious or secular—wants to have knowledgeable followers. They want the workers they are training to know their business and their targets (customers, users, etc.) well. But there is one requisite that is even more important. A good follower will stick to the leader’s instructions diligently.
Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. (Philemon 1:21)
