Moses’ father-in-law said, "This is no way to go about it. You’ll burn out, and the people right along with you. This is way too much for you—you can’t do this alone. Exodus 18:17 (TM)
Everyone needs a mentor. I know people who have multiple mentors in different areas of their lives. A person might have a financial mentor, a spiritual mentor, a physical training mentor, etc. The idea is simple and it is ancient. As successful as Moses had been, he needed the wisdom of his father-in-law, Jethro, to objectively view Moses organization and offer a crucial piece of advice. We benefit from the knowledge and experience of those who have gone before us and know the road ahead.
I’m blessed to look back at several men and women who have been "Jethro" for me. How about you?
