David was Solomon’s mentor and in this passage, he was giving him final instructions. Just as David did with Solomon, we will, during the course of our lives, have opportunities to mentor other people. Mentoring is not something to be taken lightly.
God will put people in our path He wants us to train and coach. So, the question today is: Are you ready to be a mentor? Let’s follow Jesus’ example as a mentor to His disciples.
Jesus had many qualities as a mentor. He taught His disciples with easy-to-understand parables. He led them by example, imparted to them, encouraged them, and mentored them so they could go out and teach others later in the same way. He loved them, prayed for them, and listened to them.
On the other hand, the responsibility of His disciples was to learn, imitate, and eventually become like their mentor. It is the same for us today. Our main goal in life is to imitate Jesus and become more like Him.
As we do, He teaches us how to help others. Ask God to help you follow Jesus’ example and become a Christ-like mentor.
