Tough lessons from the God College

Debra at As I See It Now discusses her discipleship experiences in the "God College." Her first course was "Coming When Called 101," and it wasn't easy:
I've taken lots of courses since then and still have never found an easy one I can recommend to you.

But I will recommend this: Don't try to skip courses or cut class. Don't expect to sail through any course God puts you through in a measly week or two. All changes take time. But you can expect help from Grace. She doesn't hand out cheat sheets, or anything, but she will help you with your homework.
Amen. I for one have wasted too much time looking for shortcuts to discipleship, ways for growing in the faith without going out of my way. One of the valuable themes running through Debra's writings is the realization that spiritual growth comes one step at a time. That's a truth all of us need to remember.
