We all have people we look up to and respect. This may be a favorite teacher/college professor, a pastor, parents, a close friend, etc. However, when you look up to them – who are you really watching?
God has been teaching me that when I look at people I admire, I shouldn’t watch the person. I should look at Christ’s work in their lives. People will make mistakes. The best examples are people who seek Christ and allow Christ to shine through them.
How about the reverse? Who is watching you? And whom do they see? I pray that God increases in my life and I disappear – so people only see Christ and His work.
