We discussed the first and second seasons of life over the past two days and will progress to discuss the third season of life today. In the third season of a person’s life, he or she moves from trying to impress people to trying to influence people. This is the period where a person wants to become a voice. This is the season when you want to say like Apostle Paul: Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1)
Many times, people in this season look for others in the younger generation to mentor. In this season, you would become hungry to pass on knowledge to others. When you get to this stage, you are now maturing because you are after impact more than anything else.
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. (2 Timothy 2:2)
In this third season of life, your lifestyle and behaviour will also begin to influence others. An example can be seen in (2 Peter 2:15) where some Christians were described to be following in the steps of Balaam who chose to use the power of God for material gains. Beloved, it is very dangerous to mislead those who look up to you. You must be particularly careful not to influence others negatively (Matthew 18:6).
If you are in the third season of life, please be sure that you are influencing people correctly.
