Every serious Christian must abandon superficial influences and cling to examples that are, not necessarily the most popular, but the most fruitful.
The call to be shaped by good examples rather than empty must be personally applied to every follower of Christ. It means naming the influences that drain and pollute.Predominantly, in our culture, this will mean giving careful attention to the moral influence of all relationships. And it means paying the high price of forsaking those who would draw our hearts from our Lord. It means being particular and honest in assessing television, movies, music and the internet. Entertainment is the worship of our world. Good examples must be sought. Bad ones must be uprooted. Anything less that this is just empty talk.
