MY FEW PAINS AND GAINS FROM MENTORSHIP AND FATHERHOOD – Pastor Daniel Olawande

To be called into the office of a pastor is a gift from God, a rare privilege but it comes with a lot of challenges.
My greatest pains are people especially those who are were close and my greatest gains and blessings are people, genuine gift of God to my life and family.

I love people a lot, I am an extrovert, The danger of multitude around you in your personal space is that you will loose your privacy and some are wolves in sheep clothing, but the benefits are major sources of fulfillment, you get to impact people directly beyond the altar and they get to see you and learn by observation.

Hmmmm, mentorship and fatherhood is a serious challenge, it’s costly but we can’t stop it.

One challenge is that when some mentees who used to be close to you are no more there, some people tend to ask questions

Some pains of mentorship is that, there are mentees who get tired of being mentored and they leave, you can’t force them.
Some get offended when corrected and they leave, mentorship is not pampering.
Some do bad things that affects your image and integrity, despite the fact that they are close to you, they won’t show any sense of repentance when faced or pseudo repentance , no sense of remorse and rather play emotional victims for the world to see.
Some pretend to be with you whereas they are far away.
Some love you as long as you don’t correct them.
Some forgets quickly how you been a blessing to them.
Some will deny and lie to you even when they have gone against your core values.
Some are just interested in your name & working for you but not ready to be like the teachings
Some are pretenders, some even when they mess up and you try to restore them, they will not be sincere enough to be helped, they keep dribbling you, will never be plain.

BUT THE BEST OF THEM ALL, THEY ARE NOT PERFECT, BUT THEY ARE WILLING TO LEARN, NO MATTER THE CORRECTION, THEY WILL COME BACK, APOLOGIZE WHEN WRONG, COME OUT SINCERE & PLAIN, CONFESS WHEN THEY MESS UP, WITH GENUINE REMORSE AND NO DRAMA, EARGER TO LEARN AND TRANSFORMED. But the challenge is that they are just 10%

Still learning from People.
