2017 – TUESDAY 31 OCTOBER
There is such a push for people to find mentors who can speak into their personal lives – businesses – and churches.
A few things to look for when choosing people to be your mentors.
1. ARE THEY CLEAN
Does their life line up with the Biblical requirements for deacons, elders and bishops. Have they kept themselves – and lived clean for God.
2. ARE THEY COMPETENT
Have they proven their ability to grow something as a leader.
Check their track record and ask others for insight.
They may be very good at gathering and presenting information – but can they impart the right things to help you grow. By their fruit you will know them.
3. ARE THEY CONNECTED
Do they have good relationships with other leaders and have clear covering for their lives.
Who are they connected with.
4. ARE THEY COMMITTED
Ask them where they and their family are planted. What is their home church.
Where do they serve when not being a big shot.
5. ARE THEY CONSIDERATE
Watch how they consider others in their world. How do they treat the ‘servers and followers’ in their world.
6. ARE THEY COMPLIMENTARY
Listen to the way they talk. Do they honour others. Are they full of compliments of criticism.
7. ARE THEY CONVICTIONAL
The only thing a leader and mentor can impart to others – is the spirit of their convictions.
Seminars with information are interesting – but not transforming.
A mentor whether knowingly or not – will impart their spirit to you.
THE BIG QUESTION
Do I want to become like the person offering to be my mentor.
