Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.
You have heard it said, “Imitation is the best form of flattery.” Have you ever watched a child imitate their father or mother? They are so serious. They pick up subtle nuances that we would never expect them to. They do not judge, they just act out what was acted out before them. This is what we have been asked to do. We are to imitate the love of Christ. We are to love the way He loved. Paul describes that kind of love. He says that love is patient, kind, not jealous, boastful, proud or rude. Love doesn’t demand its own way, is not irritable and doesn’t keep a record of wrong doing. Love endures, doesn’t lose faith, never gives up and is always hopeful. If we want to imitate Christ, we must love. Might Christ help us imitate His love today.
Dear Jesus, help me to imitate You in everything I do. Help me especially love the way You love. Guide me, direct me, fill me with Your Holy Spirit so I can follow Your example with those I meet today. In Jesus’ name.
