Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD. Proverbs 16:20New King James Version
A good mentor is important in your life, especially a Christian one.
The reason for this is because they have experienced so much in their life. Things are different but the same today. Okay the elders did not have computers or cell phones but they have experience in life. We should listen to them to avoid a lot of problems or learn how to handle the problems when they arise.
Us older Christians have the duty to help the younger ones. We are not to sit on our laurels and tisk tisk any problems our younger brothers and sisters are experiencing. If we see them begin to go astray we are to wisely, meekly and gracefully try to correct them.
Of course the best way to do this is to share our experiences with them, especially how our trusting in Jehovah has led us out of some very difficult times.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God our provider) for blessing me with wise Christian councilors in the path of life You have so wisely chosen for my life. Please bless me my Lord to be a Godly example and mentor to the younger brothers and sisters in Your holy family. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest mentor of all Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
