Set An Example

“Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. 18 For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.”

Philippians 3:17-21 NIV

A younger generation watches the older generation…they observe the words, actions and behaviors of those who came before them.  Every generation has made a contribution to where the world is today…good, bad and otherwise, no one group deserves only praise or only blame.  We are all accountable for how we act and behave.  Choose to do good things…seek to do the good things that God asks you to do according to His Word.  Amen.

Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.

Titus 2:6-8 NIV
