Always set an example others can emulate. How do we want others to behave at work, home, or in the church? We must model that behavior first.
The idea of expecting others to behave in ways we are unwilling to do ourselves is the greatest form of hypocrisy and a one-way ticket to losing credibility. Our conduct is all inclusive. We should never compartmentalize our lives into the way we behave on the job, at home, in the neighborhood, and around Christians. A disciple of Christ always lives a Christlike life 24-7-365.
Let us all resolve to provide an example worthy of others to follow.
