Personal Vision Workbook - 5. God at Work through Others

The following is from my Personal Vision Workbook. Read the introduction and legal stuff.


The Bible is chockfull of mentor relationships:
Moses mentored Joshua (Deuteronomy 34:9)
Elijah mentored Elisha (1 Kings 19:19)
Mordecai mentored Esther (Esther 2:7)
Jesus mentored the disciples (John 1)
Barnabas mentored Paul (Acts 9:27)
Paul mentored Timothy (1 Timothy 4:11-16)

God has also brought special people into your life to shape your thoughts, beliefs, and actions. They might be anyone – parents, teachers, co-workers, pastors, friends, neighbors – anyone who invested in your life, inspired you, or influenced who you have become.

List people who have significantly impacted you and what they contributed to your life.

What qualities did you see in these people that God wants you to

Is there someone you could mentor?
