Jesus Masterful Mentor 106

Rather Than Cloning

Optimist Mentoring ProgramIn the Gospels, Jesus the masterful mentor is pictured as he moves amongst people almost without them knowing it. Rather than cloning disciples, he encourages them to think for themselves. Without realizing it, they invariably embrace his ethical code and example. Jesus the mentor gives us an example in his own life of what we should do, not just what we should say!✞

Act Like the Rest

Dog asleepA University professor was confronted one day by a motley-looking hound which had ambled into his lecture hall barking aggressively at the rostrum. After vainly trying to shout over the racket, the professor gave up and turning to the dog exclaimed, "If you're going to stay, you'll have to behave yourself and act like the rest of the students." To the class's delight, the dog curled up on the floor and was soon peacefully asleep!✞
