Were you carefully mentored? Will you carefully mentor others?
Ezra the Prophetic Priest must have been a careful mentor to the people he chose to go with him to ‘beautify’ the House of God in Jerusalem. We are told if we study the scripture further they were not Levites (trained in the priestly order)……Levi would have to carefully mentor them so everything was done according to the Will of God.
Ezra 7:27 Blessed be the Lord God of our fathers who has put such a thing into this King’s heart. (Babylonian King Artaxerxes) to beautify the house of God in Jerusalem. God has extended mercy to me before this King and his councilors and strengthened me,
I gathered up the men to go with me
They completed their Calling.
I pay tribute to the memory of my mother who carefully mentored me as a little child, She said, ‘value the fact you were born a little girl’. You have a responsibility to value who you are. Respect your body emotionally, physically and inwardly.
Her example of this appreciation of personal identity had a ripple effect through all my life.
If children are not carefully mentored from their homes or in their schools they certainly must have examples of careful mentoring from others,
Sadly, even the Christian Church throughout history has not always mentored their followers carefully. Sets of ridged Rules does not work. The Ten Commandments was the O.T. example. Who could 100% always follow them? Or perhaps only mentor others according to personal agendas or goals.,
PERSONAL practical EXAMPLES. History records the people who gave their lives to carefully mentor others
Jesus coming was meant to significantly change e v e r y t h i n g.
He mentored His Disciples. Careful mentoring lived out.
He sent GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT to carefully mentor the soul/spirit of all left until He comes again.
We have a responsibility to carefully mentor others,
By example yes. By our lives yes.
But, certainly careful mentoring of other to clearly show them what was accomplished at the Cross and how vital God the Holy Spirit is to lead us safely onwards with His Wisdom and TRUTH.
Please Holy Father, help us to be CAREFUL MENTORS.in our whole life and all we do or say..
