The reading for today is 1 Timothy 4:11-16, NIV.
11 Command and teach these things. 12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
I read an article that if you’re over the age of 45, you should have a mentor, who is under the age of 30. Having an Under-30 Mentor is the New Shadowing at Work - Mentorloop
Used to be, if you lived long enough, you gained a lot of wisdom as how the world worked, along with some grey hair. Now the world is advancing so quickly that those under the age of 30 are getting educated in how things work and older ways are becoming obsolete.
You can embrace this way of thinking or you can shrink from it, but either way it definitely helps to have a mentor and more than one.
We do have the greatest mentor that every walked the earth. Our Lord Jesus Christ has been a mentor for all of us as to how to live and love.
Do you have a mentor? Older? Younger? If not, I hope you find one. It’s never too late to learn.
Dear Lord, helps us seek your guidance as a mentor as well as others to help us live and love in your image.
