Who are your twelve? Who have I given that you would teach, protect with wisdom, and bring along your journey – a journey not only for you. I bring them to you, but you must recognize. Go to the Father, as I sought, that I might choose the twelve in His will. My Spirit beckons you to teach, and will give means of doing so, but you must yourself be attuned to the call.

We may not have twelve at a time, but who are those in our lives, in our families and workplace, that we are to bring along in our short time with them? Pray to the Father. He will show you, and His Word will work in them, through you.
