Spiritual Mentoring Tip #2
Posted by Clare

Spiritual Mentoring Tips Blog Top


#2  Ask your mentor lots of questions.

Your mentor is a wealth of knowledge and experience. But, sometimes you have to “unlock” the storehouse. Here are some great questions you might consider asking your mentor over the course of your relationship.

  • What are some of the most important decisions you’ve made in your life?
  • What are a few of the best decisions you’ve ever made?
  • What are some of the worst decisions you’ve made?
  • Do you have any suggestions or ideas for being a more godly husband or wife?
  • Do you have any suggestions or ideas for being a more godly father or mother?
  • How can I honor my parents better?
  • What are some of the dangers or temptations I should be on the lookout for in the coming years?
  • As you look back, is there anything you would do differently if you could return to my age?
  • What advice would you offer about being a better Christ-follower?
  • Is there anything you observe in my life that concerns you? Are there any blind spots in my life that you see?
  • Are you aware of helpful resources I could benefit from? (Books, websites, audio resources, etc.)
  • How do you handle temptation, stress, anger, or any other issues when you’ve failed?
  • What did you do, or wish you would have done, to help your children grow spiritually?
  • Do you pray or read the Bible with your wife?
  • How do you and your spouse resolve disagreements?
