The proof of a man’s greatness is his care for others (Luke 9:48 NLT).
Every great leader knows that investing in people involves a great part of their mission. People literally are a central part of their lives. But every leader is limited by time, resources, so investing in the right people is crucial.
Regardless of how big your heart is for others,
it is vital that you remain a faithful steward of your time and resources. So if you plan to invest in someone or a small group, making smart choices on who you will mentor is important.  Dr. Mike Murdock in his book,  “7 Keys to a 1000 Times More,”  talks about the Four Kinds Of Protegés,
I believe this wisdom will add value to your life.
  1. The Passive Protegé

They observe, they learn but they only reach out when it is convenient for them.  They expect the mentor to be more committed to their success then they are willing to commit themselves. They will read a book providing the mentor buys it and hand delivers it to them. They believe the mentor’s pursuit of them is proof of his love for them. The passive protegé never grows and becomes embittered by towards his mentor.
  1. The Parasite Protegé

They want what the mentor has without doing what the mentor did to get. They want your influence but despise your correction. They stay close to the network of relationships the mentor has. They love to name drop, they will use your name to advance their agenda. They want to profit from the relationship without the cost of discipleship. They want what the mentor has earned not what he has learned.  They ride on the reputation or favor of the mentor ahead of their season of preparation, required.
  1. The Productive Protegé

They recognize the gift and achievement of the mentor. They possessive a servant’s hearts and a spirit of honor.  They refuse to make any major decision without the counsel and feedback from their mentor.  They consider their mentor to be a gift from God, to help them advance and accelerate in their calling. The productive mentor genuinely loves his mentor and desire to feel his heart. As the Apostle Paul wrote, ” But we beseech you, brethren, to know them that labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; 13 and to esteem them exceeding highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13(ASV).
  1. The Prodigal Protegé

They move towards the crowds, the popularity. They value the stage more than they do their reputation. They are “hireling,” it is nothing for them to leave their mentor for a higher salary, or a bigger stage. They love the comparison game and don’t take to easily when corrected. They think they can do a better job than their mentor, and yet lack fruit in the little they’ve been already assigned to care and grow. They love playing the political game, always, more concerned over what the people are saying that what their mentor said. Just as the prodigal son left the father for his own pleasure, so it is with the prodigal protegé.
