The power of a good example.
As Christians, we have a responsibility to teach and guide others in the way of salvation. It is a great sin to lead others away from the path of truth. The salvation of all of us is linked together; we need to build each other up and help each other on the way to Christ. Others have a right to our good example and to our speaking truth.
If we live with a clear conscience and act before God in all things, we can then simply give our word, and have it mean all we have inside us. What a wonderful thing it is to deal with people who are simple and transparent, who can be taken at face value, because to be devious or calculating never occurs to them, or to be in any way false or insincere.
Lord, help me be a good example of Your goodness today.
