a good example is the best sermon
proverb One's actions or behavior can teach more effectively than a lecture. Children will learn good behavior much more efficiently if they see it practiced regularly by their parents. A good example is the best sermon, after all. I guess a good example really is the best sermon, because everyone is talking about how the politician cycles to work each day and drinks out of reusable water bottles. It's becoming downright trendy.
