He emphasizes the importance of being aware of one's influence on others and setting an example, especially for children. He argues that people need models to form an image and that living a consistent message is crucial for representing the Kingdom of God. He also gives an example of how the church's composition can send a message to outsiders.

Hebrews, let's go to Chapter 12. I'm going to read verses 1 and 2 and from there I'm going to extract my thoughts, my meditations, my words that I hope are absolutely in alignment with the words of the Holy Spirit, that's what matters truly.
Hebrews, Chapter 12, verses 1 and 2. The brothers who do not have their Bible, well listen to me and simply follow me. Says the word of the Lord, Hebrews 12, 1 and 2: "Therefore we also -and put your name there, that we are you, it is me- we too, having such a great cloud of witnesses around us, let us strip ourselves of all weight and sin that besieges us and let us run with patience the race that lies ahead of us. Looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, despising the reproach, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
