COPYING

Dag Heward-Mills

READ:2 Timothy 1:1-14

…I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
1 Timothy 1:16
 
Copying is the most advanced form of learning. It is the natural ability given to every child who comes into this world. Copying has a bad name because some people have copied in examinations. But this is not what I am talking about. I am talking about the ability to learn and improve by wholeheartedly and absolutely copying a successful person. Human beings who copy other humans completely have a higher quality of life and a superior civilization.

For instance, European countries like France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany are almost identical in their economies, infrastructure and wealth. These countries became equally wealthy by emulating each other. In recent times, countries like Korea and China which have mindlessly and completely copied developed countries have advanced significantly to the amazement of the rest of the world. Their ability to copy completely and totally makes a big difference between them and other darker underdeveloped sections of the world.

In your ministry, your ability to copy completely and totally will always set you miles apart from other ministers who are unable to completely copy what they see in other great ministers of the Gospel. You must learn from what people say as well as what they do. This is why the Bible records both the teachings and the lives of people. This is why Luke recorded both what Jesus did and what He said.
