The Case for Mentorship

Prophet, Shepherd, Coach

“Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, ‘Be strong and of good courage, for you must go with this people to the land which the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall cause them to inherit it. And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you or forsake you; do not fear or be dismayed” (Deut. 31:7–8). The younger man stood at the edge of the plains of Moab in disbelief as he listened with fear and trembling to the delivery of what he knew would be Moses’ final doxology.

The Hebrew word for almond (shaked) is similar to the word for watchful, wakeful or hasten. The almond tree is the first tree to awaken from winter and heralds the coming of spring. Masses of beautiful, pinkish-white blossoms blanket the trees, covering the Israeli landscape in feathery white foliage.  Click here to read more.
