Sometimes it is easy to get upset when we look at the mess the world is in. But the Bible tells us that we are supposed to be a positive influence on the world (Jn 15:19, 17:14-16; Ro 12:1-2; 1 Jn 2:15; Mt 5:14-16). Jesus said we were SALT and LIGHT. Paul told Timothy that he was to be an example of how we are to live. We can learn 5 ways to influence the world from 1 Timothy 4:1-16.
