Your Presence and Guidance Matters

“For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure.” Proverbs 11:14
 
Have you ever felt that your leadership does not matter? Have you ever wondered if mentoring is important? Have you questioned yourself if it is a waste of time guiding others and providing a safe group for them to talk. After all, your mind tells you that people grow by themselves. It is the individual that makes the effort to grow.
 
So wrong! Your presence does matter. Yes, it is up to the individual to make his own effort to grow. But every individual will eventually hit his limit. There is only so much one person can do. But when you add in a mentor, a coach, a leader, a facilitator, and a safe group, something happens. Relational energy transpires. We see it in sports: A talented athlete breaks through his personal barriers through the training of his coach. We see it in schools: an underachieving student excels through the support of his teacher. We see it in business: a company’s profit goes up with a synergised team.
 
Your presence and Godly leadership with your group is crucial for growth. Additionally, the participation of your members as safe advisers to each other further fuels one another’s growth.
 
As the scripture says, “…many advisers make victory sure.” Take it from the greatest Mentor of all. Your presence matters.

Leo’s Restoration Back To The Lord

IMG_7759

Leo (the one holding the card) left the Lord for about 17 years after been baptised in the Church in Kuala Lumpur. He shared that he was afraid about his future finances and employment oppourtunities after he lost his job. He went to Singapore to work but did not go back to God. At times, he thought about the Lord, but his pride stopped him from coming back to God. “It is too shameful to come back, he thought.”

But last year, he took courage, called one of his Christian friend, Philip Kong to ask Philip how he could come back to the Lord. He re-studied the bible and re-committed his life. Yesterday, 6th May, 2017, he was officially restored back to the fellowship.
