Nestled in the concept of an example is our influenceas leaders. We influence people everyday. We influence them in what is right or wrong. The difference is bound up in our example.
Setting an example is associated with consistency. Mahatma Ghandi is noted as saying, “we must become the change we want to see.”
Setting an example is also connected to servanthood. The only time Jesus said “I gave you an example,” involved being a servant.
If we want to be who God desires, we need to understand the significance identified with our example of leadership.
