As I continue read through the book of 2 Chronicles, I am reminded of the truth that it pays to have good mentors. A few of the Kings did well as long as their mentors who were priest were alive, but the derailed after that. A good example is Joash who was mentored by the priest Jehoida – 2 Chronicles 24. Another example is King Uzziah in 2 Chronicles 26 who was instructed by the Priest Zechariah.
So seek good mentors – People that have the fear of God and are succeeding at the things you desire! Honour them, pray for them, give them gifts, listen to them. Ask them as many questions as possible. It is such a blessing to have someone who has gone before you and is willing to show you his mistakes and answer your questions around! Cherish them!
