Today I want to remind you of the Influence of EXAMPLE. Examples are better than precepts.

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American sage who said, and I have found it to be true as you also must have: “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”

The Apostle Paul said to his young protégé Timothy: “Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12) Be an example, today. And don’t just be an example, be a good one!

This poem is apt here:

A careful man I want to be,
A little fellow follows me;
I do not dare to go astray
For fear he’ll go the self-same way.

I cannot once escape his eyes.
Whate’er he sees me do he tries.
Like ME he says he’s going to be –
That little chap who follows me.

I must remember as I go
Through summer suns and winter snows,
I am building for the years to be –
That little chap who follows me.

Watch your life, because someone is watching you. (Parents especially need to know this.) Remember that today. You will succeed!
