IMITATORS OF GOD


Infants and young children imitate the faces and gestures
of their parents because, to them, their parents are their
only source of gaining understanding and interaction with
their world. We are to be just like the infants and children
when it comes to our own actions and behaviors. We are
to imitate God, who is our only source of gaining under-
standing and wisdom of eternal spiritual things.


Heavenly Father, we ask that you would help us to always
be imitators of your love, grace, and mercy to others. Give
us the ability to walk this earth as Christ did, who obeyed
you and did what He saw you doing. We ask this in Jesus'
name.


Read Ephesians 5:1


"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly beloved children."
(NIV)


"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children." (KJV)
