Why do people always choose to follow those who are rich and famous like they don’t make mistakes, like they are perfect, like they have all the answers, or like they will never die? Society promotes and commercialize these people WAY higher than biblical role models. As a result you see the decrease of positive role models that our children need to emulate.
Society has moved from being proud of a person going to college to a person going to prison. From looking up to a person who goes to work and works hard for what they have, to looking up to a person who sells drugs on a corner and gets that fast meaningless cash. People have moved from fearing God ,to fearing man, who has no power in the entire scheme of things. Parents do NOT have control over their children and children do NOT have any respect for their parents which means they do NOT have any respect or reverence for God. Realize that if parents have no form of Godliness then they are reaping what they sow.
However, the best role model that ever lived was and will always be Jesus Christ. Yes Abraham was good, but Jesus is better. David was a man after God’s own heart, but Jesus is Gods heart. Who you choose to influence you or have an impact on your life will determine the outcome of your life. Jesus Christ is the only role model that can lead us to God, the only one who came to redeem us of our sins, the only one who can show us the right way, the only one that can reveal the truth about God, and the only one that can give us eternal life.
Listen to me when I tell you that your Pastor or Bishop are good role models but keep in mind that no one is better than Jesus. Your Pastor or Bishop may mess up or fall short but Jesus Christ never has and never will. Why would you want to follow people who are prone to error or destined to mess up? The Bible says that all have sin and fall short of the glory of God. Why don’t you allow Jesus Christ to be your role model?
