Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. ~ 1 Peter 5:2-3
Serving God means serving His people. Leading others toward Christ means, first, we must walk toward Christ.
You are the instrument by which your family, friends, coworkers, and community can get to know Christ.
Take care in the way you share the gospel, not by what you say - but by what you do and how you live.
What are your actions telling you? What are they saying to others?
