And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.
I wear a hematite bracelet on my left arm.
I do not wear it because it is pretty.
I do not wear it because of the uniformity of its pieces.
I do not wear it because of its shape or color.
Why, then, do I place it on my left wrist?
I have a bone spur in my hand, which causes pain.
There are those who suggest that wearing magnetic bands or jewelry near a painful area of the body will help with pain relief.
Wearing magnetic bracelets do seem to help me, so I continue to wear them.
I keep them close because of their magnetic properties.
As followers of Jesus, we need to show those around us what our “properties” are.
People will be drawn to us on a very real level not because we are pretty.
Not because of our clothing.
Not because of our outward appearance at all.
They will be drawn to who we are and the Christ-like character we reveal in our day to day lives.
By doing so, we will be encouraging and healing, loving and giving.
Others will come to know that we are serious about our faith as they see our caring actions.
