The Importance of Behavior

Importance of Behavior

Teachers not only labor in the instruction of the Word, but they also have a responsibility to model the truth that they herald. The teaching of the Word and living of the Word go hand-in-hand. Behavior that is “worthy of the evangel” is indispensable (Philippians 1:27):

Become a model for the believers, in word, in behavior (I Timothy 4:12, Concordant).

As to all things tendering yourself a model of ideal acts(Titus 2:7, Concordant).

Concerning all things yourself showing a pattern of good works(Titus 2:7, Young).

But, thou, hast closely studied—my teaching, manner of life  (II Timothy 3:10, Rotherham; cf. Young).

Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.
