Is it a goal of yours to become wise? Think about this Proverb, “The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding” (Pr. 4:7). In other words, the wisest thing you can do is become wise and if you lose everything in your pursuit of wisdom, yet attain it, you’ll come out ahead. The Bible also says wisdom “is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold” (Pr. 3:14). You get the point, wisdom is invaluable.
One of the most tangible steps you can take toward gaining wisdom is seeking out a mentor. As a leader, I want to learn incessantly and having a mentor is a great way to do that. I’ve been blessed with some incredible mentors and it truly has been invaluable. Over the next few days I want to share with you a few principles I’ve learned from mentors that have stuck with me. In the meantime, I’m including this clip of Craig Groeschel giving a gift of wisdom to young leaders at Catalyst. Have a great week!
