will only take you so far. There are more good (and bad) resources (blogs, books, audio/video, etc) available today than any other point in history.
What is at least as significant is that these resources are more accessible than ever before (often instant).
Unfortunately that means I can easily make a living off borrowed imagination over doing the more difficult heavy lifting of appropriating what I read and learn from others into my unique and authentic self.
There is a very real temptation to run across the profound and sticky ideas of others, spoken and written into contexts other than our own, and believe repeating those are somehow guaranteed to have more impact than speaking from our own unique but seemingly less profound perspective and experience.
I believe God’s hand is in placing us where we are called to minister and we often need to trust Him more in knowing that He can use us in ways that may not seem as cutting edge to us but are exactly what God’s children need in your particular context need.
Good ideas are certainly worth sharing but always remember that those writers don’t shepherd the particular flock you have been called to. They don’t know these sheep by name as you do. So trust God’s provision, borrow when appropriate, and know that God can use our weaknesses and inability to be as eloquent as the next person to still move mountains.
