I have give you an example to follow.
Do as I have done to you. I tell you the
truth, slaves are not greater than their
master. Nor is the messenger more
important than the one who sends the 
message. Now that you know these
things, God will bless you for doing them.
John 13:15-17 NLT

ASK YOURSELF, "Is the way I'm living attractive and contagious? Will my attitudes, the words I speak, my expressions, the way I handle challenges and setbacks, cause anybody to want what I have?" In other words, are you drawing people to God because of your joy, your friendliness, your enthusiasm, your attitude of faith? Or do you alienate people turning them away because you're perpetually negative, discouraged, caustic, or cynical? Nobody enjoys being around a person like that. If you want to point people to God, or simply to a better way of living, have some enthusiasm and be excited about life.

(From Joel Osteen's YOUR BEST LIFE Begins Each Morning.)
