Life’s a Runway, and You’re the Model

Tonight I am leaving for a family celebration of my mom and dad’s 50th anniversary. Pretty cool, huh?

Their marriage has not been easy and has been marked by challenging jobs, cross-country moves, bitter resistance from once-thought-to-be-friends, financial shortage, and many other things. Through it all, though, their faith in God and unbreakable commitment to each other have brought them through.

Which reminds me that the greatest way to teach good marriage skills is to model them.

And the best way to teach leadership, or how to worship, or anything else, comes through modeling.

So this begs the question: What am I modeling for my kids, my congregation, or my coworkers?

How about you? What are you modeling for others?
