Choose things of value: Be a mentor

  1. 1. Here is an attitude based on a “me first” value that you might recognize, along with a heavenly value to replace it with! Choose Things of Value: Be a Mentor Contributed by R. A. Watterson, based on the writings of Maria Fontaine. Illustrations by Anthony. Design by Stefan Merour. Published by My Wonder Studio. Copyright © 2014 by the Family International “Me First” Value: My younger sibs can be bothersome. When I have to do things with them, it makes me feel like people think I’m younger than I am. I’m growing up, so I don’t want to have to do things with my younger brothers and sisters. Heavenly Value: What if your cool uncle or aunt or grandparent said, “Oh no, we don’t want to take you on that super special outing to the recently renovated amusement park, because people might think I don’t have any adult friends”? That’s silly, because they wouldn’t say that, but it’s similar. When you take time with your younger siblings, you’re showing them kindness that makes them feel loved. When you take time to include them in your game, you’re giving them a dose of love that helps them flourish. When you sacrifice an activity in order to do something with them, you’re letting them know they’re important, and it creates a strong bond of affection within your family. You can be a powerful influence on your younger siblings, a mentor to them as they grow up. What the Bible says: Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin. Zechariah 4:10 NLT Thanks, Billy! I want to be just like you!
