I definitely find that mentoring a baby Christian, and watching her try, fail, and try again is sometimes discouraging. But then, I have to look at how clumsy my walk was for a very long time. James talks about trials growing us. I can see that in my mentee, Maria. When she starts to beat herself up, I take her to 1 John 1:9, and remind her that we confess, repent and move on.
I am grateful that my mentor never gave up on me. She just sent me a card that brought tears to my eyes.
Please pray for my mentor, Ruth, and her daughter, Crystal. Ruth has a recurrence of cancer in her chest wall, after having a mastectomy. Crystal, age 26, has Stage 3 Melanoma.
Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every man has to seek in his own way to realize his true worth. You must give some time to your fellow man. For remember, you don't live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too.
