Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were to sell your business? If you got sick or had to move – who would take over? This is exactly the problem that Abraham helped his father solve!
As I read the story of Abraham – I realize that he was trained up by a father that understood that he was only a part of the string of men that would live in Canaan. He wanted to go all the way with his family – but he just couldn’t.
After Abraham was called by God to move – he packed it all up and headed out. He was out to finish the journey his father started! In fact, from this section of scripture, it appears that God fulfills promises through us rather than to us. I think we get caught up in having to do the whole thing by ourselves. If we look at the success of Abraham & his family – we see that we have to be all-in for the portion of the journey on which God calls us. In addition, we need to train up those that will go further than we do.
Mentoring is a Great Solution for Passing Down the Qualities of a Leader
If we understand the our businesses and ministries are multi-generational, we can then work on training up those around us that can go further than we do. This means that we have to swallow our pride and lean into others that may – one day – become more powerful than us. Therefore, it is important to train them well and hone their character in a way that engenders trust and helps build an enduring legacy.
