Choose Wisely

We have a choice…we can act in such a way that causes those who see us to stumble, or we can choose to act in a way that leads others towards the gospel.

If you say you are a Christian, you can be guaranteed that people are watching you.  Watching and waiting…and thinking,  “Is she really who she says she is?  What will she do in THIS situation?”

According to God’s word, we are to follow in the steps of the one who paid the ultimate price for our sins.  For you have been called, because Christ also suffers for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. (1 Peter 2:21)

Christ died for us so that we might live a life forgiven from sin.  He gave his life so that we could live ours in a way that pleases and honors the Father. Are your actions pleasing and honoring to your Father?  Are you setting an example for others to follow...in your home, in your workplace, in your… Click To Tweet

Where you go, what you do, how you speak, how you react…it is all so evident of where your heart is.  And while this is a tremendous responsibility, and may seem overwhelming at times, it is also a huge honor to point others towards the cross.

So as you start your day today, remember that little eyes are watching, as are the eyes of the aged and mature.  Ears are listening and thoughts are being formed.  You WILL set an example today.  What example will that be?  Who will it represent?

Your actions and your choices make a difference in the lives of others…so CHOOSE WISELY!

    I saw a church board the other day that said, “You are an example, whether you want to be or not.” That has kind of been one of my themes in life as I have seen that my example has had more effect on people than my words!

    Yes, it is so important to be a good example of Christ’s love. I remind myself and my children, often, “how would I like to be treated?” If I wouldn’t like to be treated the way I’m about to treat someone, then I must check myself and not do that. I think the biggest struggle is still with my family. It is so easy to “let it fly” when I’m frustrated. So I’m learning (slowly) to check myself in that area too.

Would love to know your thoughts...please leave a comment and God bless you.
