“Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children” (Ephesians 5:1).

Whether it’s children watching their parents, music students watching their instructors, young athletes watching professionals, or an apprentice observing a craftsman, we learn much of what we know through imitation. As followers of Christ, we are called to the highest standard of imitation — the imitation of our Heavenly Father. While we cannot be omnipotent, omniscient, nor omnipresent, we can be “kind, tender-hearted, forgiving one another just as God in Christ also has forgiven us” (Ephesians 4:32).
