School is starting back and we all have to get back in to the normal school year pattern. This involves school shopping, early bed time routine, picking the right outfit, getting ready to learn what you need and much more. As you go back to school or work, you're going to be back with some familiar or new faces. While there you must learn to be a good example like Christ was.
Why is it important to be a good influence? It shows people the good that is in the world. It helps our family and friends see the great character of Christ and shows we can be better than we're portrayed to be. How can one be a good influence? You can do this by not cheating on your test, being faithful, treating your fellow man right and so much more. God has taught us through His word that a good name is better to be had than silver and gold. Therefore, let us as God’s creation and people honor Him by living this way.
Let me encourage everyone to understand what a good influence is, and allow it to be a part of your life. This can seem hard and useless at times but it will be worth it in the end, and the reward in the end will be good for us all.
