What are you modeling?

“Charles Barkley, the NBA basketball star, once stated, “I don’t want to be a role model.” In reality, you are a role model, even if you don’t think so or want to be. Everyone is. I once read that even the most introverted among us will influence 10,000 people in our lifetime. You are a role model whether you like it or not. The important question is, “What are you modeling?”

What are we modeling to those around us. Starting with those in our own household and then to those who attend school with us, those we work with……….,the list goes on and on.

What are we modeling to the world by the way in which we handle issues in the church, in the family? Do we act in love, do we act out of hurt as the world would? How do we act?
