Most of us go through our days not realizing the impact we make on the people around us. We feel like we’re just an ordinary gal or guy and we don’t command a wide berth, but the truth of the matter is that we make a huge difference every day. We just may not be aware of it!
Paul advised his younger brother in Christ, Timothy, this way. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1Timothy 4:12NIV) That pretty much covers it all! Not only are the unbelievers looking to see how you’ll handle an unpleasant situation but your fellow believers need a good example too!
Don’t rely on yourself to keep up impressions! That will get you into serious trouble! Rely on God to live through you in everything you do. His Presence will be evident to all .Gwen~
