Obvious direction: how to be there for others other than yourself

Have you ever been in search of a mentor to be able to be there for you? 

I agree that we all need a mentor, but sometimes we have to be one. 

Take a look at the devotional below:
1. I see Special as an Elijah faithfully serving God in my community. I see Josephine as an Elisha looking for a mentor. 
2. I can really open up my ears and listen to the godly women in my life who will help guide me in my spiritual walk with the Lord. 
3. Jasmine could use a mentor. I will help her by being there for her and helping her in her walk with Jesus. 

1 Kings 19:19-21 NIV
[19] So Elijah went from there and found Elisha son of Shaphat. He was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen, and he himself was driving the twelfth pair. Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak around him. [20] Elisha then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. “Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,” he said, “and then I will come with you.” “Go back,” Elijah replied. “What have I done to you?” [21] So Elisha left him and went back. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the plowing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out to follow Elijah and became his servant.
Titus 2:1-5 NIV
[1] You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. [2] Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. [3] Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. [4] Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, [5] to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

See, I warned you! You know that you need a mentor in order to grow in your faith! You also need to become a mentor to other men and women. 

Well, I hope this helps! See you later!

Blessings and take care!
