Praying from 2 Thessalonians 3:9 relating to Example, Imitation, Leadership

Dear God, help me to understand that having the right to do something doesn’t always mean it’s the best choice. May I strive to be an example to others, so that they may see the goodness in imitating my actions. Guide me in making decisions that align with your will and bring glory to your name. Amen.

Verse: This was not because we don’t have the right, but to make ourselves an example to you, that you should imitate us.
2 Thessalonians 3:9

This is a Command. The verse is commanding the reader to imitate the example set by the writer.
