Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith. – Hebrews 13:7 (NLT)
Do you have someone you love to watch on social media? Maybe you watch what your favorite singer does, or favorite athlete. You know who they’re dating, what they eat and all of their friends. Maybe their clothing styles influence what you wear and how they talk influences what you say.
There’s nothing wrong with following celebrities on social media, but they shouldn’t be the only people that you’re looking up to. In this verse, it encourages us to look up to those who teach us the word of God. Whether it’s a youth pastor, pastor, teacher or someone else, we should be looking up to the people that teach us God’s word.
So if you don’t already, take some time to find someone you can look up to who is godly. Spend some time watching their habits and imitate what they do. Their faith can help challenge you in your walk with God.
