Take a moment to think about the people who have had the greatest positive influence on your life. I’m sure there’s at least one or two you can think of. Then ask yourself what it was about them that caused them to impact you so much. Summarise it in a few words.
I’m sure you’ll discover that it was the character of their life that made the biggest impression on you, not so much their talents, their gifts or their abilities. It is things like love, faithfulness, enthusiasm, passion, persistence, and integrity that influence us.
This shows us that our greatest influence in life will be who we are (our life) not just what we say or do.
Right now, you are influencing people around you. What kind of influence is it? Is it positive or negative?
You are being watched … so think about the example you are giving. Make a decision to live a life worth following. Be an example to others.
Example … think about it.
