Impartation Of Lifestyle

Impartation Of Lifestyle
2 Timothy 3:10, 14(KJV)
10. But thou hast fully known my doctrine,manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity,patience,
14.But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.
While it is a good thing to receive an impartation of the anointing resting upon someone, it is much more important to receive the manner of life of that person, especially if it is godly.
The lifestyle or the manner of life that a mentor exposes a protégé to and what a protégé emulates from his or her mentor will largely determine how far that protégé will go.
While following mentors is a natural outcome of protégés, protégés must avoid any unbiblical practices that a mentor may engage in. A lot of care and respect must be exercised when avoiding the mistakes of a mentor. Don’t throw the baby with the bathwater as this common adage says. Have the wisdom to keep the good that you need to keep and avoid the bad that you need to avoid.
I am saying this because mentors are not perfect and may make mistakes. It is critically important for protégés to be able to do the right thing in the face of a mentor’s mistakes and yet still have a healthy respect for the mentor.
There are some protégés who have ended up following in the mistakes of their mentors and in the end they have negatively affected their lives.
This is why it is important for mentors to set good examples for their protégés. Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.(1 Peter 5:3)KJV
Mentors on the other hand should lovingly correct their protégés if they make mistakes. That’s how we raise good men and women of God who will carry the relay button stick of the gospel further than we can ever carry it
