31 Days to Become a Better Pastor: Invest in the Next Generation
Moses had his Joshua. Elijah has his Elisha. Paul had his Timothy and Titus. Who do we have?
Every current pastor was once a young person who knew nothing about ministry. Ideally, someone came along side us and mentored us as we discovered our gifts and began to serve. There may have even been more than one. We either can remember that person or wish we had that person.
At some point, we should be that mentor to someone else. Even if we have only pastored for five years, there are people who know less than we do. We can put time and energy into these individuals and help them on their journey. The more we invest in the next generation, the more equipped that generation will be for ministry. Who will we mentor?
