Be an Example: Message Minute
Good morning! This is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a message minute.
Fulton J. Sheen’s autobiography "Treasure in Clay" records the following dialogue. (Find it here on Amazon)
I stopped to ask a few boys for directions to the Town Hall where I was giving a lecture. They told me where the Town Hall was and then asked, "What are you going to do there?"
"I’m giving a lecture on heaven and how to get there. Would you like to come and find out?"
"You’re kidding," one boy said. "You don’t even know the way to the Town Hall."
I've learned that it doesn't matter whether you are 8 or 80 years old, someone is always watching you, following your example or steering clear of you. Men especially, listen to what one man in the Bible tells another man in the book of Timothy. "Set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. " (1 Timothy 4:12)
That's a tall order men, but a worthy challenge. Speech, conduct, love, faith, purity. This week, try to set an example for all the young eyes around you to follow. You'll be glad you did.
