Intersection of Life and Faith

Should a Christian Participate in Mentoring?

Ellen Dykas

The following is a transcribed Video Q&A, so the text may not read like an edited article would. Scroll to the bottom to view this video in its entirety. 

"Mentoring and discipling I think are two very similar ways of looking at a common aspect of helping people learn how to live life in a way that is godly. I would say how mentoring is a little different from discipleship is where discipleship might be helping someone learn the truths of the Christian faith, mentoring might relate even a bit more to living out a godly life in this world. For example, Titus 2 says that the older women are to teach the younger women how to love their husbands. We could look at that broadly, how to live life. That might be a form of mentoring. I do think that Christians are to be involved in this because, first of all, Jesus was quick to encourage His people follow after me. Even Paul in other places of Scripture it says he would say, 'Follow my example. Follow my example.' We all need help. I think living life in this world as godly mothers, wives, workers in the world, godly singles. Of course with men, it'd be on the other side of things, godly fathers, godly workers in the world, godly husbands."
