daily word - righteous agents

Do you recognize that some persons can be a bad influence on you; such as leading you back into bad habits? This is a real phenomenon and you are wise not to associate with people who will cause you to stumble in areas of known weakness. Do you know that the reverse is also true? That there are those who inspire you to better conduct than you would on your own? You may think of these as agents of righteousness. Do you think that only pastors or others holding spiritual offices can act this way? What have you found to be true in your own life? Haven’t you seen children or the elderly have this influence on yourself or others, even doing it unawares? So you don’t need an office or title to be an agent of righteousness. Who does this for you? Do you do it for anyone else?
