On this episode of On Faith’s Edge Episode 15, we speak with Entrepreneur, Speaker and Award Winning Podcaster, Daniel J. Lewis. We learn one small but powerful verse from Proverbs that may completely change who you seek advice from.
1 Corinthians 13:4
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Spiritual Hack: Proverbs 9:10 – The Beginning of Wisdom …
10 Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. 11 Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. 12 If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.
Choosing a mentor, teacher or guru will have a dramatic impact on your life’s direction, your mindset and your “success”. Throughout life we have many advisors, some we choose, some are thrusted upon us. The ones thrusted upon us, well we don’t have much choice. But the mentors we choose, can make all the difference in the world.
I don’t necessarily believe that someone must be a Christian to be a mentor. But, I will say this; the Bible certainly teaches us that “Fear of the Lord is the foundation for wisdom” Without a solid foundation, the structural integrity is suspect.
Have I had non-Christian advisors? absolutely. However, the first thing I look for in a “guru” is their position on faith. While I still filter everything through common sense and the scripture. If the person’s faith is their foundation for life, then I take some solace that the integrity of their advice is solid.
At this point in my life all of my personal mentor’s, are solid men of faith. Men like Ray Edwards, Cliff Ravenscraft, Dan Miller, Michael Hyatt, Ravi Zacharias, William Lane Craig and Hank Pryor. Some don’t know me and those that do may be surprised that I consider them an advisor, but I know their foundation so I trust their guidance.
Mentors are for a season as well. My advisors from 10 or even 5 years ago are not the same as today and my gurus of today will be vastly different 2 or 3 years from now. However, I will say this, almost without exception, they will have a solid belief in Jesus Christ as their foundation because I strongly believe the words in Proverbs 9:10; “The fear of the Lord is the foundation for wisdom..”
Have and amazing week! Remember God is Real and Eternity is Now … Let’s go out and live like it!
