Set An Example

First, Seek Him...

We know that those entrusted to us are looking to us for leadership, but sometimes we forget this in the nuances of our days and lives. God calls us to set a good example, not just in the big things or the easy things, but in everything. Seek Him about this today!

...Then Speak Him

“Set an Example” is a great conversation to have with your kids! No matter our age, we all have the opportunity to set a good example for others. “Speak Him” into your kids’ lives by inspiring them to be the kind of leaders God has created them to be!

Titus 2:7a NIV – “In everything set…an example by doing what is good.”

Word

God, What Are You Saying To Me?

Doing what is good sets an example for others.

Discover:  Your life makes a difference in others’ lives. In every choice you make, God wants you to lead well by setting a good example. Your good outward example is evidence of all the good things God is doing inside you.

Dialogue: Talk about the good things God is doing in you. How is He working in your life right now? Share about how you’re seeking to become all the good things that He’s created you to be.

Dive In: Choose one specific way you can do good today in such a way that sets a good example. Commit this to God and ask Him to help you lead well.

Titus 2:7a NIV – “In everything set…an example by doing what is good.”

Why

God, Why Does This Matter?

Setting a good example matters because leadership matters.

Discover:  You are a leader. Whether you realize it or not, your actions lead others, either for good or for bad. God wants us to lead others well by doing good.

Dialogue: Do you know that others are looking to you for leadership? Truth is, everybody is a leader of somebody. Share about a time when you led well or when you did not. What happened? What types of leaders do you want to follow? Why?

Dive In: Think about who you lead – friends, classmates, co-workers, siblings, etc. Who needs your good example today? Pray right now for God to show you how to lead them well.

Titus 2:7a NIv – “In everything set…an example by doing what is good.”

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12 NIV) 

Discover: You don’t have to wait until you’re a certain age to set the example and lead well. Whatever your age, you can set a good example right now. 

Dialogue:  In this verse, Paul gave Timothy five areas in which to set a good example: in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity. Talk about each of these and tell a story or two about how you’ve set an example in these areas.

Dive In: In what one area of this list will you especially seek to set a good example today? Maybe it’s a hard area – that’s okay! Choose it and declare it: “With God’s help, today I’m going to set a good example by…” Always ask God for His help to lead others well.

Titus 2:7a – “In everything set…an example by doing what is good.”

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

“I have given you an example that you should do as I have done for you” (John 15:13 NIV)

Discover: Jesus set an example for us, and “in everything” He wants us to set a good example, too. Another way to translate “in everything” is to say “in all things.” An old saying goes, “All means all and that’s all that all means.” So, if Jesus wants us to follow His example and set a good example in all things, that means – – – in all things.

Dialogue:  Given the month we are in and the celebrations that are happening, how should we set a good example in “all things”? How can we point to God with our lives, in everything, this month? 

Dive In:  Make a decision as a family to be leaders in all things this month. Ask Jesus for His help to live the way He showed us and calls us to live.
