One week from Monday I will launch my pamphlet titled Jesus as Mentor, which details how using Jesus as a model mentor can help you become a better mentor yourself. It is written for the military context, as that is my context, but civilians can learn from it as well. Before launching the resource, I'd like to ask the following question: Are you cut out to be a mentor?
Many of you will answer as I used to...you'll say “no.” You don't think you have the right experiences or the ability to reach someone the way a mentor does. A few brave souls will probably state that they do have the ability, but don't know how to start a mentoring relationship. Even fewer will say that they really do know they are gifted in this area and are involved in mentoring.
Most people simply don't know what's really involved in mentoring. What is it and what does it require? These are good questions that I'd like to ask the community as a group to answer.
Do you have what it takes to be a mentor? Why or why not? And how can someone know? Please comment below:
