Who's Advising You?

“Counsel in the heart of man is like a deep well but a man of understanding will draw it out” (Proverbs 20:5).

We all need mentors—people who personally coach us in our walk with God.

When I am with a mentor, I ask questions. Asking questions adds to the quality of your life: “Counsel in the heart of man is like a deep well but a man of understanding will draw it out” (Proverbs 20:5).

Every person has a reservoir of knowledge, skills, and experience to share and you’re wise if you learn to draw them out.

In fact, you don’t have to limit asking questions to just a single mentor who you meet with on a regular basis. You can meet a “mentor” anywhere.

My suggestions is to keep a 3x5 card with you that has a list of standard questions you can ask whenever you meet someone you can learn from; you then pull out your card and ask questions like:

How do you handle stress?
What have been the greatest successes in your life?
What do you think contributed to that success?
What did you learn from the greatest failure of your life?
What would you do differently if you could start over?
What kind of books do you read?
How do you manage your time?
How do you manage your money?
What have been the greatest lessons you’ve learned?
What have been the greatest surprises in your life?

Give hope, prayer, and encouragement below. Post a comment & talk about it.
