A Great Example

Pinned Image

      When I read this caption, I immediately thought of one person, no pun That would be Phillip Persson.  He is one of our pastors at church.  One of his causes is teaching kids music for free on almost any instrument they choose.  Never seeking applause but instead teaching them discipline, a work ethic and faithfulness thru music.  He also expresses his love for the Lord through song writing. He has written songs for many occasions, like weddings or child dedications, not to impress others but to express God's will and  desire for that situation.  Philllip has taught me music lessons on the hammer dulcimer for a few years now. I have recently taken a break from those and his absence on Saturday mornings has truly been felt.
      I could go on and on about the great example he sets for us all in many different areas of the church and with his life but I just wanted to give a glimpse. 
      Our ultimate example tho is Jesus.  As Christians, let others see us as a good example of what it means to be a believer and follower of Him.
