“Today, there are more words and books and fewer living examples...Example is the most powerful rhetoric” (St. Paisios the Athonite, Thomas Brooks)

“…give yourself up wholly, all your life unto the Lord your God, and all your life will move in wise, beautiful, stately, and life-giving order, and will all become beautiful as the lives of God’s Saints, who gave themselves up entirely to Christ their God, and whom the Church daily offers to us, as an example to imitate.” (St. John of Kronstadt)

“People must see Christ at work in us, even if that is not what consciously is going through their minds. It’s to our benefit too if we just live the Gospel and don’t think about it as such because the more it is a genuine part of us, the more we are truly humble and thus Christ-like and the more we will draw people to God through our unconscious example.” (Sacramental Living)

“Jesus is more than just an example to look at and try to follow; He is the source of inspiration and the fulfillment of abundant living…Neither God nor our children expect us to be perfect. But we can become examples of men and women who genuinely love God and seek to follow Him with a whole and earned heart.” (Alice Bass, Gigi Graham Tchividjian)

“God gave Ezekiel the difficult responsibility of presenting His message to ungrateful and abusive people. Sometimes we must be an example to or share our faith with unkind people.” (Life Application Study Bible, Ezekiel 2:6-8)
