In today’s world, we are told that we as men have to be the strong type, and we have to push each other around. This puts pressure on us and causes some of us not to live up to the ideal that God has in mind for us. Then, as Christians, we are told that we need to be leaders and have a mental strength to lead others, which also means someone has to follow at some point.
This is difficult because how are we to be strong leaders, follow God, and follow others? This leads us to this idea of mentoring that has been abandoned for a lot of people in the Christian world, or at least around me it seems to be.
