The Mentoring-Protégé Relationship

"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction." - John Crosby

Mentors produce change in us, whereas protégés learn from us. Mentors aren’t necessarily always our parents, nor are they always our friends, rather we can learn from them informally at a distance. As Christians, God has called us to be spiritually mentored, and to spiritually mentor others. In our search for a mentor, it’s important that we don’t hero-worship, as there are no perfect people. Rather, Paul told Timothy in 1 Corinthians 11: Follow my example as I follow Christ. An underdeveloped person means both underdeveloped families and an underdeveloped nation. Let’s pray that God places the right people in our lives so that we can fill the rolls He has assigned us.
