Develop your gifts through Mentoring
Prov.9:9 “Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.”
Why must you repeat a mistake that another man has made? If you do, you’re definitely not learning well. Mentoring helps you gain vast experience and knowledge without the pains.
Mike Murdock said, “A mentor is a major gift from God to you. He or She is someone God has placed close to you to unlock your greatness. They’re bridges between your present and your future.”
Hebrews 6:12 “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Mentors have gone ahead of you and you can obtain what they have obtained and much more if you follow carefully.
As a matter of fact, a good follower usually end up becoming an improvement of his mentor. Jesus knew this as a great truth, that was why he said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father.”(John 14:12). He expects us to take the gospel and the principles of the kingdom to the next level! The disciples were so mentored by Jesus that when he left, people gave them the name Christians, i.e Christlike! They spoke like him, they behaved like him! As a Christian our very first mentor should be God himself, he has shown us great truths in His word which are principles to live by. Hear this:
Isaiah 54:13 “All your children will have GOD for their teacher, what a mentor for your children!” (MSG)
But then, God has equally placed some people ahead of us and we are enjoined to learn from them (Heb.6:12).
Solomon carefully followed his mentor who was David his father, so it was only natural for him to succeed him on the thrown. Solomon did not fight a single war unlike David his mentor…(to be continued)
