Recently, I told a dog owner how her dog (Maya) was like "mentor dog" to dogs new to the kennel routine. This dog had a wonderful disposition, always took care of business in the proper places, went straight to her kennel run after coming inside, and ate promptly.
Often new dogs are confused. If they are also of a good temperament, I let them go out with Maya to see how she "does things."
Who you follow matters.
Have you taken time, in these early days of a new year, to consider who you want to be? What characteristics do you wish to possess? Have you thought about what God desires for you? What is the best life He wants for you? Consider these matters well, then decide who you want to follow into this new year.
