Reading a new book, The Divine Mentor, by Wayne Cordeiro. I learning some great things.
1. God's word contains "mentors" in the different characters (Moses, Joseph, Paul, Peter, David, Samson).
2. There are 2 primary teachers: wisdom and consequences. The cost of getting wisdom is an upfront cost. Seeking it takes time. The cost of consequences is delayed, but often much more painful. We learn, but it can really stink.
3. There are 2 primary kinds of pain: discipline and regret. Very much similar to the the teachers above.
Looking forward to digging into God's Word through some of ideas that Wayne presents in this book. So far, I would highly recommend this read.
