Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.1 Peter 2:12
Living for the Lord
Everywhere you go, people are watching. It seems as though nonbelievers watch the things believers say and do. We can influence the people around us by the way we live. I remember a girl I knew that was working with youth. She told a story of how one of her youth girls saw her out at a restaurant drinking with a friend. It was not that she shouldn’t be out with a friend, but the way she was behaving made the youth girl question her faith. The youth leader was laughing about the incident; however, it had a big impact on the youth.
If we want others to grow in their faith, then we must be careful how we live. We have to live wisely, pointing others to Jesus.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me be an example to others. Guide me in the way I should live. Amen.
