What do you think of when you hear "Therefore lift up one another" (1 Thessalonians 5:11)? I had the unexpected opportunity to have a meeting with a man I consider my MENTOR. As we talked, I soon became aware that my questions were being answered NON VERBALLY! I would speak, he would PAUSE, the answer came and I would repeat what I had heard to him. As we continued to talk, I realized HE WAS "LIFTING ME UP" to JESUS for the answer. He was making me depend upon my own relationship with GOD for the answers. I learned that a MENTOR is someone who is WISE and can be TRUSTED; But they are not THE COUNSELOR! THANK YOU GOD, THANK YOU PASTOR JIM!
