Life by Example
"Example is not the main thing in influencing others.
It is the only thing." - Albert Schweitzer
I have always admired my dad's example. He is now in his 90's, but his life has been one consistent example. If he sees a scrap of paper on the sidewalk, he picks it up and tosses it in the trash can. In the summer, he'll bend down to pull a stray weed from a sidewalk crack. If he sees a project that needs doing, he's the first to volunteer. If someone's in trouble, he's the first to stop and help. Such a true, gentle, consistent demeanor is the best example.
TODAY I WILL THINK BEFORE I ACT, MAKING SURE MY EXAMPLE MATCHES MY IDEALS.
