Being a Mentor

Being a Mentor

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries1 Minutes

How can we measure the impact our lives can have on others? One important way is through being mentors. This means helping others develop and mature in practical and spiritual matters.

Based on a recent international research project, the Gallup organization concluded that “mentors can play an important role in supporting new companies in their development process. Without a mentor, an entrepreneur may find it difficult to access resources, build networks, and create partnerships that help the enterprise grow.” In fact, people with access to a mentor are more likely to achieve more lasting results and be more successful.

All believers have opportunities to be mentors, share their testimonies, pray with those who have needs, teach others lessons they have learned, help relieve burdens, and bless others financially.

We see this kind of influence in Paul’s relationship with Timothy. As his mentor, Paul wanted to give Timothy sound teachings and opportunities to grow. He also encouraged Timothy to continue this pattern of mentoring in his relationships with others.

Today, remember that you can influence people in all of your relationships. As God has blessed you, seek to bless others. Share out of the resources you have been given. Be a source of encouragement. Look for opportunities to teach others things that God has shown you and principles that lead to success. Seek to help others mature and be a greater impact in the world.
