Setting the Example

Read Jeremiah 52:1–34

Children often play the game “follow the leader.” One child walks, and the others have to follow where he goes and do what he does. In life, the people we have around us influence us, and we all follow the examples of others.

He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, just as Jehoiakim had done (Jeremiah 52:2).

Zedekiah was appointed king when Nebuchadnezzar deposed Zedekiah’s nephew. Instead of repenting and following a godly example, Zedekiah chose to continue to follow the practices of his recent predecessors on the throne. That decision led to grave consequences both for him and for all those he ruled over.

We must decide who will be our influencers. We can choose to imitate the lives of ungodly people, or we can choose to follow those who are seeking God.

Family and friends are the biggest influences in our lives. Those we admire can also have an impact on our worldview. However, God wants to be the primary influencer in our lives. We should filter all other influences through what He would want us to do, say, and think.

Thought for Today: Surround yourself with godly influences.
