3 John 1:11
"Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from god; whoever does evil has not seen God." ESV
We are either imitating good or evil. It does not show in what we say, but in our everyday actions. If we are imitators of good, we will be loving, kind, seeking to do good, sharing the grace and mercy of God to others. If we are imitating evil, we are unfeeling, judgmental, impatient with others, thinking of ourselves first, and striving to become more like we want to be rather than what God wants us to be. What kind of imitator are we?
Heavenly Father, we know that our hearts and minds get blinded by things of this world. Open our hearts and minds so that we can examine ourselves to see what we are really trying to be like. Our desire is to imitate good, so that we will be more like You. By Your grace and mercy, help us to do that. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
