I was spending time with my Grand-baby, Isabella, this morning. As we sat and played she would eventually crawl over to something she shouldn’t touch. I would say “no” and shake my head. She would then shake her head to imitate my actions, but try to touch it anyway. You see, she could see me shaking my head and figured the action out, but still doesn’t understand the words.
This is a lot like our faith. Early into our Christian walks it is easier to follow the actions of those we see as Christian leaders than to truly understand or comprehend the bible. That is why as Christian leaders it is our responsibility to make good choices in how we act and what we say.
Did you realize that as a seasoned Christian you are an example for others? Do you not know that others witness you from a far and try to walk as you do in your faith? No pressure. Just be aware. Someone out there is watching you. Monkey See – Monkey Do.
