In counseling others, it is often recommended that we need to learn how to detach. When one becomes adversely affected, tired, or loses their objectivity, it’s said that retreating to regroup, refresh, and reflect, is a healthy and necessary activity. Does that hold true with discipleship? Discipleship certainly includes counseling, but is also much, much more. This will be the first in a series of posts dealing with detachment in discipleship. I hope to discuss such things as:
What is detachment in discipleship?
Why to detach in discipleship.
When to detach in discipleship.
How to detach in discipleship.
Who we should detach from in discipleship.
The remaining posts in this series, however, depends on the answer to this question:
Is there a biblical warrant for detaching ourselves from those whom we are Making Disciples of?
