July 9: Example

Scripture Lesson: Titus 2:6-7

On this date in 2011, with a third inning home run off Tampa Bay southpaw David Price, Derek Jeter became the 28th player and the first New York Yankee to collect his 3,000th hit. The Captain enjoyed a five hit day in the Bronx, including an infield single in the bottom of the 8th that drove in the winning run as the Yankees gained a 5-4 win. Jeter has been one of baseball’s great ambassadors, always setting a good example of how to play the game and how to relate to the fans.

Paul, in writing to Titus, instructed him to set a good example in everything by doing what is good. As Christians, we also should be setting a good example so that others can see Jesus living through us. When we live our lives under the leadership of the Holy Spirit and live them to serve others, that’s precisely the good example that others will see. Our actions as a believer speak much louder than any words we might say. The world needs to see Jesus living in and through us, and that will happen when we concentrate on setting a Christ-like example by doing good in all things.

  1. Why is it important for us to set an example by doing what is good?

  2. How can people see Jesus living through us?

  3. Describe a time you saw actions speak louder than words for the Kingdom?

Derek Jeter became a “pro’s pro” by setting a great example on and off the baseball field. The Lord needs each of us to be His pros, setting a Christ-like example by doing good wherever we go.

who is actually a Boston fan, Leave it to the Red Sox to choke again! Go Yanks!I also agree that IQ (or lack thoreef) is necessary in all professions. I work with new business owners all the time and unfortunately, some have a tough time with the business IQ stuff. If there is no demand for a product online, why waist your time, money and effort trying to create it in 30 to 90 days? Sure, demand can be created, but it won't happen overnight unless you got a lot of cash and a stroke of luck.
