GOD PAUSE: Never underestimate the powerful influence of a godly mentor and example in your life. The Bible says “Uzziah behaved well in the eyes of God, following in the footsteps of his father Amaziah. He was a loyal seeker of God. He was well trained by his pastor and teacher Zechariah to live in reverent obedience before God,.As long as Zechariah lived, Uzziah lived a godly life. And God prospered him.” (2 Chronicles 26:5). What a blessing to have a parent, a pastor, an influential teacher in your life to show you the ropes of what it looks like to love and follow the Lord! Lord, we thank you for those who influence us to stay true to You. And we may we be that kind of spiritual mentor to others. Amen.
