I recently came across a journal note I made in 2007 where I entered: ‘Need to give out of myself to others. Teach so others will know, teach others to believe and teach others to do.’
Then I wrote, ‘If you believe profoundly in what you are doing, this doing itself is the mode of being relevant, and it constitutes your manner of being articulate.’
All of this was a personal call to be the example and then expect solid results from the example. I suppose any of us could be comparative to this is this sense: We should not expect others to believe and respond to something we have not exampled well.
“And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” Jesus
