We Need To Lead, Not Follow!

“Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’ Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God …”. (1 Corinthians 15:33-34, NIV)

The people we associate with (professionally and socially) have a tremendous influence on our character. It’s human nature to want to be liked and accepted by our peers. Consequently, many of of us fall into the trap of following other people into sin or destructive behavior just to be accepted. If we are to follow Christ’s example and live as He lived, we need to stop that type of behavior. We need to take the “lead” so others follow us toward a meaningful life with Christ. We need to lead, not follow! It is up to us to be a positive example. It is our job to gently and lovingly bring others to our Savior!

Enjoy your Wednesday, “Working for Christ”!
