The Meriam-Webster dictionary defines “role model” as a person whose behavior is imitated by others. The entertainment media is constantly providing us with information about the so-called “stars” and role models - whether they are actors, musicians, singers, or other public figures. Often, we see children and youth emulating the dress and behavior of these “stars”. As Christians, we should have our own “stars” for our children – persons who are different, yet extraordinary role models. And, these “stars” must start at home. This week’s blog centers on the role models whom our children should have in their every-day lives.
When I found this image for this week’s blog, I was very impressed and happy. It says a tremendous amount in very few words, and I encourage you to take your time to read it and talk about it with your spouse and other family members. Please set aside some time to do so. As people who are not Christians look to the world’s “stars” to give them inspiration for living, we Christians must choose a different standard – one that glorifies God.
