Assignments in the Lessons
One of the most important things to remember about the assignments in the lessons is that they are required. Do not look at them as optional, or that you can assign some and skip others because what happens is the disciple does not become fully prepared to be a disciple-maker. . . Every discipler has different strengths and weaknesses but you must make sure that your disciple is going to be a better discipler than you.
Otherwise, the multiplication process will be disrupted. That is one of the most important things about your discipleship - the future multiplication of disciples into disciple-makers. This is the purpose of discipleship.
So when it comes to the assignment, make sure they are done, make sure they are done correctly, and of course keep a good attitude about the assignments and keep a balance between helping a young disciple grow and helping a disciple to become disciplined.
But if a disciple is not able to do the assignments and the disciplers are not able to get the assignments completed then the discipleship process is breaking down. This is not about just filling in the blanks and moving through the subjects. This is about multiplication.
So be careful to follow each instruction, not skip any assignments, and make sure that each one is completed successfully.
