Way back in 1978 I got involved in a church that was led by four godly men: Neal, Steve, Rick and Tom. They were all great examples for me to follow and I aspired (and still aspire) to be like them. The things I remember most about them was their zeal for the Lord, for His Word and for prayer (they got me out of bed every Saturday morning for a prayer meeting – quite an accomplishment!).
They were also great examples as godly husbands and fathers. I will be forever grateful for what they showed me (and taught me) by their example. I think of this exhortation when I think of these men (and many others like them): “Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.“ (Heb. 13:17)
