Learning From Mentors

 “Mentoring is: sharing Life’s experiences and God’s faithfulness.” –Janet Thompson

Up until a point, Moses had to deal with all of the trivial quarrels in his tribe (Exodus 18).  Moses’ father-in-law suggested however that Moses delegate more trivial matters to others so that he could focus on the bigger decisions that needed to be made.  It turns out that this was exactly what Moses needed to hear.  Because Moses was able to take constructive criticism from a mentor, he was thus able to lead more effectively.  You too need to submit yourself to a mentor that will take the time to get to know you—whether be a coworker, friend, or family member so that you can learn from them and grow to be who God called you to be.

Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders (1 Peter 5:5, ESV).
