Children Live By Example Of Others !

Children live by example of others.

Parents pray that their children will follow the RIGHT examples and not the wrong ones.
When Jesus said, “Follow me,” he was inviting everyone to live by his example.

And so we pray for the strength to follow Jesus.
Nothing helps more to follow Jesus than the example of those others who are following Jesus. They set a good example, and they are setting that RIGHT example that is God’s own gift to us. They inspire us in the way that Hebrews 12:1 puts it, “we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,” and so we can follow Jesus—by their example.

In the Christian community, we are literally surrounded by many others who are following Jesus.
Sometimes YOU are the one who is inspired, and that is wonderful!

When you are inspired by persons of faith, thank God for their place in your life that you may live a committed life of faith.
At other times YOU are the one who is able TO BE AN INSPIRATION for someone else.

Thank God for that privilege.

Ask for God’s help that you will be up to the privilege.
