I wrote the following for a seminary assignment and I was feeling convicted that I might not be living up to the task of mentoring those younger than me like I should.
It is a noble task to have the desire to be a mentor to young men. I couldn't agree with you more in this area. The young men of the church need to see the older men spend time loving their wives and ministering in the church. We are called to be an example. I know that 1 Timothy 4:12 is addressed to the young man Timothy, but I truly believe that it should be the mandate for all Christian men. This is why the movie Courageous was such a huge success. There is a thirst for the things of God and a need for men to lead the way.
