Prayer: Lord, may I be mindful today of the example that I set at home, at school, and wherever else I may be. Amen
Scripture: In everything, set an example by doing what is good. In your teachings show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned… Titus 2:7-8a NIV
Who did you look up to as a child? Did you imitate their behavior, the way they dressed, or talked? Who do you look up to now and why? It is one thing to set an example in our classrooms or offices when we are speaking directly to our students (or parents, or fellow educators), but what kind of example do we set in the hallways, parking lots, and other areas where we are also seen and heard. Body language, tone of voice, inappropriate language, and whispering also sets an example to those around us. “What we do speaks louder than anything we could ever say.” How can each of us carry out the attribute of being a good example in our daily environment (classroom, hallways, meetings, cafeteria, office, etc.)?
