Have any of you ever heard of the country song called 'Watching You' by Rodney Atkins?
It's about a young boy who wants to be exactly like his father. The father realizes that if his son looks up to him so much, then he had better start being a better example. Have you ever thought of how many people might look up to you...try to do what you do...try to be exactly like you? Well, you might not know it, but there is probably at least one person who is younger than you, that looks up to you as a role-model.
Wow! That really hits me hard when I think about it. "Am I setting a good example for those who are younger than me?" "Am I a good role model?" I sure hope so! The Bible says:"It would be better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he was cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. Luke 17:2".
Wow! What does that tell you about being a good example? You should watch what you do, even if you don't have anyone who looks up to you.
For those that drive: How many of you suddenly slow down, of check how fast you're going when you see a police car drive by? Most people do. But, how many of you slow down when you're the only one on the road, but you see that you're going too fast? Not too many, I'm sure. I don't drive, but I do know about our human nature.
Closing note: Please remember those little eyes that are watching you. Think of what you do, what you say, and how you act before you do it. Trust me...It helps!
