Excellent Word Seth!!
The Timothy principle
Love it. Amen.
Thanks again Seth for a great reminder of the generational effects of one-on-one personal discipelship…reading through John 4 this week I have been reminded as well to take joy in being both the sower and the reaper or the harvest. Sometimes we play the role of sower and do not see the harvest being reaped in the life of a disciple…other times we are the reaper. I’ve been both…and admittedly have been tired in times of being ‘just’ the sower…but I rejoice this morning as I let go of the weariness and rejoice in being one chosen to be His ambassador and am strengthend again to press on. Thanks for your ministry Seth.
Thanks Seth…This principle has been a distinctive for AIM these many years. I’m appreciating a handful of people I’m mentoring now and find it keeps me sharper.
I LOVE mentoring younger followers to become spiritual leaders of tomorrow!
It is my life’s joy! Nothing, nothing, nothing compares to it on this earth, as far as I’m concerned!
Yes, yes, yes…Paul and Timothy were perfect examples of this synergetic relationship between young and old, in the spiritual realm. And, one of the keys to the success of such a cross-generational relationship, I have found, is to be open and receptive to mentoring from the younger, less mature, one!
I’m talking young people four or more decades younger than me. I will never be too old to learn something from a 15- or 20-year old! Whee-hoo!
As you can tell, I am joyous today on 10-10-10!
