The Importance of Mentors Part 5

Several signs can help you identify mentors sent from God:
They are role models.
“6 But we command you, brethren, in the name
of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from
every brother who walks disorderly and not according
to the tradition which he received from us. 7 For
you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for
we were not disorderly among you; 8 nor did we eat
anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor
and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden
to any of you, 9 not because we do not have authority,
but to make ourselves an example of how you
should follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded
you this: If anyone will not work, neither
shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some who
walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working
at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now those who are such
we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus
Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own
bread. 13 But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary
in doing good. 14 And if anyone does not obey our
word in this epistle, note that person and do not keep
company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet do
not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a
brother.” (2nd Thessalonians 3:6-15)
