The Power of Mentors

Posted by Matt Lane on January 26th, 2017 filed in Christian Living

I was sharing my story with a group recently and it made me reflect on three men who poured into me. It’s amazing to look back and see how much God used them to speak truth into my life and how I was changed forever.

I never went looking for mentors and maybe at times the learning went both ways. But regardless, these guys taught me so many things. It would be hard to list out how many! How to trust God, how to love on others, how to relate to teens, how to teach in front of a large group, how to study the Bible, how to be discerning but most importantly, God used these men to draw me closer to him.

By God’s grace I’ve in turn have been blessed with opportunities to pour into others. The things that God will teach YOU as you pour into others is priceless.

We are all on our own unique journeys. Not better or behind, just different. And, God set it up that in the Christian life we would need each other (Galatians 6:1-10).

Who’s pouring into you and who are you pouring into?

For sure it’s expensive but there is little that is more rewarding.
