Learn from Wise Mentors
Wise Mentors can assist you on your journey in life by offering sound advice, challenging you to greater achievement and helping you to avoid unnecessary mistakes. These are men and women who are walking or have successfully walked the path you desire to follow.
Throughout the Bible we find those who sought and adhered to the wise words of mentors in their lives. Elisha had Elijah. Esther had Mordecai. Ruth had Naomi. Joshua had Moses. Titus and Timothy had Paul.
Lean on the leading of the Holy Spirit to discern those in your life who have been assigned to mentor you. Some might be in your immediate vicinity either in your family, church or even at work. Make the time to watch, interact and learn from them.
For those whom you do not have direct access to because they are not in your circle; invest in your purpose by reading their books, listening to their material or using other products that they have available. Others might have already passed away; search and gather information about them.
Ask God to show you areas in the lives of your mentors that are worth emulating and the wisdom to avoid the mistakes they made.
