A True Story from my book Rescue the Stories Book Two
Learning by Example
When I was a child growing up, my mother always told me,
Hazel, you are the oldest, so you must be an example to the other children.
When I received Jesus as my Savior, she then told me, Hazel
others will be watching you to see how you act, and behave, so be a good
example for them.Remember you are the
Best Christian that someone knows!!
I later learned that I did not need to experience the
consequences of walking in the ways of the world.I could learn from the example of others, and
steer clear of those things that could harm me, and take the proper path of
As we read and study the Bible, we can learn many things by
example to help us in our Christian walk; such as what to avoid and who to
1Corinthians 10:11Now all these things happened unto them for
ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the

We prefer to shut our eyes and ears when we hear reports of
Christians being killed because of their faith.
We think to ourselves, “It can’t happen here,” - - but the

abhorrence of Christians and of Christ Jesus.
May we cry out; “Oh Lord, open my eyes that I might see.”
And then, “Open my ears so I may hear.
What is the next thing that you desire me to do?”
May we pray, “Here are my hands and feet - - where would you
like me to go, what would you have me do?”
