Mentoring a New Generation for Christ
Scripture is bursting with people who lived their lives in such a way that their children and grandchildren were blessed by their faithfulness. Each lesson in this study looks at a different person in the Bible and the character trait they passed on to their children and to those who were around them. Ultimately, every lesson leads back to Jesus, the perfect example of what we aspire for all of our children to become. These examples paint a picture of ways that we can impart these same traits to those whose lives we touch.
Mentors come into our lives in many different ways. Most of the time, they have no idea that they are mentoring us because these are people who have simply made the decision to live their lives differently. God uses their example to inspire our lives. One of the primary roles we serve as Christians is to live our lives in such a way that others will be blessed by what they see, and desire to become a part of the Kingdom because of it. But Christians cannot become positive mentors without first making sure their own lives are in order.
What we teach others is both intentional and unintentional. It’s true that our actions speak louder than our words. If we want to truly serve God and see others come to Him, we must begin by cleaning our own hearts.
This curriculum explores over 40 different character traits such as forgiveness, faith, perseverance, kindness and courage. It teaches first how to apply these traits to our own lives, then how to mentor others in the same way. It is designed to train leaders who will have the privilege of watching others become all that God has for them to become.
