Genesis 26:18 “And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.”
Genesis 26:19 “And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.”
It is only a fool that calls himself a self-made man! My spiritual father once told me that, scientifically, if a child is given birth to and kept in isolation for fifteen years during which nobody spoke to him but only given food, at the end of the fifteen years he won’t be able to speak.
The reason is not far-fetched, every word you speak is what somebody has said to you! If nobody ever spoke to you, you will be “wordless” and speechless!
When you see a man that is not under mentoring and have no regards for people who have gone ahead of him, you’ve seen a man that will achieve success very late in life if he ever achieves it.
I’ve watched with pity several people struggling in life and destiny making all the mistakes that have been made and documented in books! I’ve seen several victims of the errors which have been made and corrected.
When you see a man that is not under mentoring, you’ve met one that is traveling the path of destruction very fast. No matter how brilliant you are, you will never have all the wisdom required for life.
When it was time to build the great temple of God, the wisest man that ever lived, King Solomon had to go look for Hiram to help him out. Nobody is an embodiment of all the knowledge in this world, we all need counsel.
Mike Murdock said, “Mentoring is learning without the pains of another”. What a cheap way to learn.
He also said that, “Mentors are the difference between poverty and prosperity; decrease and increase; loss and gain; pain and pleasure; deterioration and restoration.”
