Have you ever noticed the role that imitation plays in our lives? Children often imitate super heroes, athletes, musicians, and celebrities. From dressing like them to mimicking their actions.
Children are very impressionable and it is important that they have good role models. In most cases, children look to their parents or close family members for an example of who they are and who they are supposed to be.
As a father, I want to be a Godly example for my children. In today’s world, it isn’t always an easy endeavor. Parents and families need a lot of love and support as they aim to live like Christ. We need to consistently pray and ask for God’s help. As Christians, we should strive to model Christ by learning His Word, looking at His life in the Bible, and then imitating it in our own lives.
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2
I urge you today to look at your life and see if you are imitating Christ. If not, I encourage you to submit to Him and strive towards living your life consistently as a disciple.
