As the disciples were always with Christ, watching, learning and understanding his ministry, so they too could teach as he did. So should we be. We do not always have time as leaders to give individual attention to each person, thus the reason we should always be raising up leaders who will give this care.

Jesus always had follow up with his disciples after they came back from tours, taking the opportunity to help them see what they did right, and what needed improvement. Having direct supervision helped to keep His followers on track. When they came back, in the mist of Christ rejoicing with them, he took the opportunity to remind of what was the real victory.
