Middle Minutes Adoration

The young me in my 20s knew, instinctually and biblically, that part of my growth in God needed to include the input of others who’d gone before me … but naturally, as we all often do, I assumed I would find the *best* way to think and see from the *best* sources who would ensure the *best* future growth for me.

I suppose I forgot we are human.

And when I think of it this way: I don’t need a perfect mentor — one who has the answers for all of life. It’s better if I am angled toward finding mentors and leaders and pastors who are reaching for God but who haven’t quite figured it all out, because it keeps me looking to God … the one who makes things grow.

“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:6).
