For physical training is of some value but Godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 1Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
If Jesus was all about religion, being pious and upright, He wouldn’t have assembled such a band of what people would have called “misfits” in our time. With all their fallibility, Jesus’ values began to rub off on them. In living and dining with Him, they began to embody His person, act and speak like him and consequently improved themselves and became Godly leaders.
Not everyone you will come across will share your beliefs or religion. If you do, then who would you be trying to influence among them? However, when you meet people who are different from you, deal with each one of them with tolerance. Never be wise in your own eyes but keep aspiring to excel and lead them by the godly values you live by. Walk everyday with the Holy Spirit to bring out the best in you and always walk the talk.
Have a blessed day!
