Be an Example
… I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love (Ephesians 4:1–2).
Think of the impact we could have if we determined to allow the example of our lives to do more “witnessing” than our mouths.
Just by helping out another mom at your child’s preschool, reaching out to that neighbor who seems like an outcast, letting someone know you are praying for him or her, or giving a sincere compliment to an acquaintance — every day you have an opportunity to show the goodness of God. And I have found that our good works, kind thoughts and uplifting words often open the door for us to share the good news.
So today, look for ways that you can be an example of Christ. The eternal impact of such an act is limitless!
