Just like my daughter wanted to be like me, I want to become more like Jesus. She wanted to be like me, getting the manicure and participating in the same thing I was doing. I won’t say I was just like Jesus in that instance because I told her no at first without thinking. I am so glad Jesus is not like us. However just as I took pleasure in watching my daughter wanting to be like me, Jesus takes pleasure in watching us wanting to be like him.
What is your new stage in life? What corners are you turning? My daughter is turning the corner, heading to a new stage in her life and I am excited to be a part of it. I am also becoming so much more careful so she will follow me as I follow Christ. Check out where you are and where you want to be. Don’t be afraid to emulate Jesus. He won’t say “No.” He is waiting for you to say, “I want to be just like you!”
