Day 5: Living as an Example
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.1 Timothy 4:12 (KJV)
Reflection: Our lives are meant to be a living testimony to others, reflecting Christ in every aspect. Whether young or old, our actions, words, and attitude should set an example. Living out these virtues authentically can inspire others and honor God.
Illustration: Think of a lighthouse on a rocky shore, its light guiding ships safely. By living as examples, our lives can be that guiding light, helping others navigate through life’s challenges toward Christ.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live as an example, reflecting You in all I do. May my life be a beacon to others, guiding them to Your love and grace. Amen.
