Roles of Mentorship in Leadership and Discipleship (continuation).


Another important role of mentorship to be considered today is what I term Accountability. We now live in a generation in which submission to someone else is no longer easy to find.

Accountability simply means submitting our records to someone else who in this case is our mentor. To choose someone to submit to takes humility. And humility is a key prerequisite for fast learning.

A Man who is not accountable to Himself for His life can not be accountable to someone else for His life.
Its simply a life of recklessness.

And apart from this, when we choose someone whom we submit to, the consciousness that our vision has been shared or that there is someone out there who has some expectations from us will make us uncomfortable with not doing something impressive.

Accountability is the bedrock in the school of mentorship and disciplineship. To choose someone as a mentor is to accept the person's role as overseer and monitor over the affairs of your life to some degree. This is why a mentor is someone you freely and consciously choose and accept for this purpose.

Therefore a mentor should receive records or demand records of progress reports and accounts from the mentee. This expectations and responsibilities help keep the mentee on his feet knowing that someone will receive a report on whatever is done. This might not be rosy, but the rewards far outweigh the efforts.


Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they must give account. Hebrews 13:17

Yours in progress,
