A MENTOR'S ENCOURAGEMENT

In my office hangs a tie and a pair of suspenders enclosed in a glass and wood case. Those mementos belonged to my academic advisor, mentor and friend from my days in seminary - the late Dr. Gary McGee. About half way through my program, I stood in his office tired, burned out and in tears. I told Dr. McGee, "I can't do this anymore!" He smiled and gently reaffirmed me, "Mark, you can and you will!" If it had not been for his encouragement and reassurance I never would have graduated. This is the same word of encouragement that Jesus gives us everyday.
