Everything we do teaches.
Our actions and words communicate what we value. The things we don’t say or do communicates our priorities. For the people who we are leading/shepherding, our very lives provide a target for what their lives should look like.
With that in mind, are you a good target?
- Do you do all the things you should be doing?
- Do you use your words the way you should use your words?
- Are you avoiding the things you should avoid?
If someone were to look at your life and attempt to discern your values from your actions, what would they say you value?
What does your life teach?
