No doubt, all of those present in the class have had role models whom they have admired and looked to as an example for them to follow. What was it about these individuals that inspired them? Ask the members if their heroes were relatives, celebrities, Bible characters, or someone notable in church history. Did these amazing people possess something unusual that made them a success (a quality that eludes the average person)? Or did they simply make “right” or “best” decisions when faced with uncertainty in their lives? What character traits did these mentors or icons lead with that inspired the adults in the class in their youthful days? How did their loyalty to these teachers, parents, or neighbors impact their life decisions and help them to be more like Jesus? Perhaps someone would want to share about emulating a person that turned out to be a negative influence.
