Whether you know it or not, you are a role model. Someone is always watching you wondering if they would buy what you are selling. As a model, what type of “clothes” are you selling? Are your clothes for all to see of high fashion, or are they the peasants’ clothing. As a child of the Most High God, your character should be Exemplary in all things. If you looked at yourself through a child’s eyes, what would they see? And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching. (Titus 2:7)
Can your life be viewed by the onlooker as someone seeking self centered pleasures or do you give of yourself to better the world around you? Teach the truth so that your teaching can’t be criticized. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed and have nothing bad to say about us. (Titus 2:8) A child comes into this world a blank page. Does the life you live, shown by your actions, bring glory to God or magnify the devil’s work? Your child will be just like you. Which view will they buy?
