I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. (John 13:15 NIV)
Setting a good example is the start of being a good example. Our words and deeds must remain in sync. Sustaining an example to the world for what is good and right.
Now some may say, “but who are you to good and right?” I say that good and right is typically self-evident. “Which of you fathers, if your son ask for a fish, will give him a snake instead” Luke 11:11.
