I have been
fortunate to have many great mentors, coaches, disciple-makers, and spiritual
friends in my life. I dare-say it would not have been possible to live my life
without these people. A full education in life requires more than just information,
it requires transformation. This is where a good friend and mentor comes into
the picture. James Houston puts it this way:
When we are looking for help from the
right kind of people, “teachers” are not enough… We forget that the
nurturing and caring relationship is inherent in effective teaching. Wisdom,
after all, is more than data processing. Activism that is devoted to a cause
can also be a poor substitute for relationships, because it is too busy to
cultivate friendship. The Greek philosophers were wiser when they stated that “thought
is not meaningful without action; and action is not meaningful without
friendship.”   James Houston, The Mentored Life

May 2017 be
a year in which you find one or two additional mentors in your life. I would
suggest that this would make 2017 your best year ever.
