We are told that we influence a minimum of four people everyday. Kenneth Blanchard said, “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.”
But, what kind of influence are we exercising?
We need to guard our influence because it effects the character, behavior, and development of others. Our influence can either be good or bad.
If we have opportunity to influence others by bringing them to Christ, or influence Christians in faithfulness, should we not do so?
The time we have on earth is limited and fleeting. Each day that passes can never be regained or relived. Now is the best opportunity to ensure our influence for Christ.
