What if you try to mentor a younger person and they let you down? How long do you have to keep working with them? If there is a parting of the ways can the strained relationship ever be mended?
This happened with the apostle Paul and young John Mark. During their first missionary trip John Mark couldn’t handle the challenges and went running home to mama. What happened after that can teach us a lot about how to deal with intergenerational conflict and mentoring.
