Always Set A Good Example

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.

6 Encourage young men to use good judgment. 7 Always set an example by doing good things. When you teach, be an example of moral purity and dignity. 8 Speak an accurate message that cannot be condemned. Then those who oppose us will be ashamed because they cannot say anything bad about us.9 Tell slaves who are believers to place themselves under their masters’ authority in everything they do. Tell them to please their masters, not to argue with them 10 or steal from them. Instead, tell slaves to show their masters how good and completely loyal they can be. Then they will show the beauty of the teachings about God our Savior in everything they do.–Titus 2:6-10 (GW)
​We should​ always take the time to encourage others. Our society is learning that most habits are “caught, not taught”. Because of that, we need to be sure our lifestyle reflects that of Jesus. We must “walk the talk”. This is true for all of us, but a higher demand is put on teachers. We must attempt to live lives that will not give others a reason to disparage the gospel. In this passage, we can substitute employers for masters and employees for slaves. Though, employees are not slaves, the employer has purchased and the employee has sold a portion of his time to the employer. Therefore, to not give all we can give on the job is stealing from our employers. As Christians, we should be the best employees in the workplace, not complaining or murmuring, but working hard to please our employers in every way, as long as it does not require us to be immoral or do anything illegal. This pleases God and draws others to Him.
