Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
These verses remind me that we can benefit from mentors even after they have left us. The wisdom we gain from Christian mentors does not change or become outdated. We can remember them, and remember what they taught us and how they lived. Of course, Jesus was the greatest mentor ever. Can you imagine being assigned Jesus as your mentor? We all have been assigned Jesus!
Holy God, you have allowed me to know many wonderful people who have put you first in their lives. I can continue to learn from them, even after they are gone. Above all, you sent your Son. I am forever grateful. Amen
