Good behavior is worth imitating, but bad behavior can only bring bad teaching to a person who wants to learn to do good.
Anyone in a leadership position, whether it is an important position in a company or any type of institution, this person who runs the company or institution must have an attitude worthy of following and imitating so that the company or institution they run can move forward.
We as Christians must abide by the mandates that God has given us, and in the Bible we find a teaching related to shepherds:
Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
Hebrews 13:7 (KJV)
In this scripture, it is advised on the misconduct of those who carry bad doctrine, that is why the writer of the Hebrews invites us to follow our leader (pastor), as long as he carries a good conduct, if it is without blemish.
We clearly know that if a leader is not doing well before God, then we will not be able to imitate his faith because he will not have it. In this we must be very careful in the doctrine that we are taught and who we imitate.
This is a great warning that for today we must also take into account and see well who we follow, we must analyze and scrutinize as the Bible itself says.
So, we must be very careful of those who are not true imitators of Christ, of those who are placed as our leaders. Let’s imitate the good of it, not the bad, since God does not glorify himself in anything bad.
