In Praise of Mentors - Rita
Posted on December 21, 2020
A good mentor constantly pushes the people around them to grow toward improvement, not perfection.
They teach them to pray and hustle every day, both through their words and through their actions.
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus...
Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do." - Paul (Philippians 3:12-14. 17)
