OLD MAN MENTOR

Old man mentor had his pupils some 2,000 years ago.

What he taught them was wisdom, the only way to go.

.

Abraham and Moses had Jehovah, the very best.

Elisha had Elijah, many prophets passed the test.

.

The disciples, taught by Jesus, could not get much better!

Oh yes, Joshua had Moses, they went by the letter.

.

Paul had Gamaliel, taught law and philosophy.

Later, in the wilderness, God taught and that was free.

.

Paul mentored young Timothy, his son in the faith.

Many are still mentored into Christ’s saving grace!

.

Melancthon had Luther and both from Rome were led!

Following the Scripture by the Holy Spirit fed!

.

My parents were my mentors, they taught through early days,

To follow Christ, the Savior, in Holy Spirit ways.

.

And then The Lord took over.  I am Holy Spirit led.

His teaching will continue as daily I am fed!

.

He is leading me to heaven, I have faltered by the way,

But depending on His strength, I am led to perfect day!

.

Eternal in His glory my Mentor and my King,

By faith I, even now, can the song of victory sing!

.

It is not my win but Jesus, who saved me by His grace,

And died for me that soon I may look upon His face.

.

One look not near enough!  I will spend eternity

Basking in His Son-light because He mentored me!

.

My depression destroyer to reach that happy day

I keep looking to Jesus!  He led me all the way!
