Set a Good Example

And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. — John 13:14, 15 (NLT)

One of the greatest things you can be is a good example!

People need other people who set a respectable example for them to follow. They need to see people who consistently show positive attitudes, do good deeds and live holy, healthy lives. People need to see other people who inspire them to live with high integrity, a strong commitment to godly values and loving relationships. People need to see other people who are kind, generous and compassionate.

There’re a lot of things you can’t be, but one thing you can be is a good example. Don’t just talk the talk and walk the walk in a way others can imitate!
