Mentoring Relationships

“Mentoring is a developmental relationship through which one person shares knowledge, skills, information and perspectives to foster personal spiritual growth of someone else.This a powerful connection that produces after its own kind. In other words, good mentoring causes the mentee to give back and become a mentor to another. When people feel they have not been adequately mentored they are not as likely to mentor someone. More importantly bad mentoring has the same affect in a negative way it produce negative mentors and mentees.
Now I guess you say what does the bible have to say about mentoring? Well, the bible is the originator of mentoring principles and the concept of mentor in Christianity can be defined as a wise and trusted counselor or teacher. However, the bible does not use the word mentor specifically but it is filled with numerous examples of mentoring relationships. Moses and his father in law Jethro (Exodus 18), Eli and Samuel ( 1 Samuel 1-4), Jesus mentored his disciples ( Luke 9), and both Paul and Barnabas excelled in mentoring(Acts 9-15) Jesus model of mentoring is clear, He lead and we are to follow. He said, “If anyone will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me”( Matthew 16: 24-26). Christian mentoring is a process dependent upon submission to Christ, in which no one CONTROLS the relationship. This spiritual example should remind us that mentoring is not “CONTROL” it really is love, empathy and support dually executed.
Finally the resounding theme of mentoring is Power to support, and guide another person to greatness with Christ as our example. It is vital to the Body of Christ that we rise up, mentor our sons and daughters, and change another generation stronger and better than we’ve been.




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
