In this episode of Principles with Cory and Logan we talk about the phases of growth.
As you read the book of Genesis chapters 37-50 you see this young man by the name of Joseph. He's 17 years old and he has this call on his life to do something great. He probably felt it at an early age and had some kind of internal knowing. Those of you who have a calling on your life you know exactly what I'm talking about. There's this burning desire somewhere deep down inside of you, something deep down in there that says you were made for greatness. Well, Joseph has this on his life and begins to have some dreams of leadership, in particularly leading his family. But because of his arrogance and immaturity he begins to let his older brothers and family know about this dream. His older brothers being jealous of him decided to just get rid of him by throwing him into a pit then selling him into slavery.
It took another 13 years in slavery, in prison, going through trials, disappointments, and accusations before he stood before Pharaoh in the palace and ultimately becoming 2nd in command where his dream was finally fulfilled. But between the pit and the palace was the process.
The Process is what matured and developed this young immature man into a wise leader on the worlds stage.
We tend to want to skip the process and microwave our way to the dream, but the microwaved process has no staying power because the strength of character is not developed. That only comes through the process.
It's in the testing and trials of life that the depth of our character is truly revealed. So what is the process of growth. You can check out the video for more in depth explanation but here are the 4 phases of growth:
1. I don't know what I don't know.
2. I know what I don't know.
3. I know and grow and it starts to show.
4. I simply go because I know.
