If you have a spiritual mentor who is still living, please consider sending him or her a note of thanks for the influence he or she has had in your life.
It will definitely make the day into a rich blessing for him or her.
After all, if you received a note of appreciation from someone you pointed toward the Lord many years ago, wouldn’t you rejoice and praise the Lord who used you?
I’m thinking now of a pastor who influenced me many years ago and who is in the final chapters of his earthly life. I need to send him a thank you note and tell him that I’m praying for him and his mentally fading bride.
It’s the right thing for me to do.
I pray that you’ll do the right thing for one who led you closer to the Lord and His purposes for your life.
What prompted this idea this morning?
Check out what the Apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Thessalonica, people he had led to the Lord and whom he had taught the Word of God.
“It gives us new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord.” (I Thessalonians 3:8)
Paul was thrilled when he heard that some of his spiritual children were tight with God.
Your mentor will be thrilled and renewed, as well, when he or she hears that you’re tight with God.
As always, I love you
