Former NBA star Charles Barkley, the Round Mound of Rebound, as he was called, is famous for saying, "I'm not a role model." In spite of the fact that young kids wanted to imitate him, he didn't want that responsibility. He ignored the fact that his high visibility made it necessary for him to behave with at least an understanding that millions of people were watching him.

We don't have millions of people watching us but we do have some very important people watching--our families, our friends, our unsaved neighbors. Is your life worthy of imitation by them?

Paul embraced this responsibility. He told the Corinthians, "Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ." And this is the key for living a life worthy of imitation. Imitate Christ. Follow His example.
