Be an Example … a Good One!

Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I’m a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. 1 Timothy 4:12 says, “…be an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” I am commanded to be an example. I need to be kind to those that are unkind. There are some people that drive me crazy, but I still need to be nice to them and love them. God tells me to. Forgive those who don’t deserve it. God has forgiven me, and I am to forgive them as well. What I say and what I do reflects who I am. Is what I am reflecting, someone I am proud of? That is a question I need to ask myself on a daily basis. Maybe even more often than that. Only in my sobriety have I been able to actually be proud of the example I am. Today I am proud of who I am. Be who you want to be, but be genuine, be kind and loving. That’s all I have for today! Have a great one!
