Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, 2and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Food for Thought:
In this passage, Paul calls us to be imitators of God. If you were to put together a list of attributes of God what would be on this list? Pick one or two of these attributes that you need to work on in your life.
God, you discern our hearts and look beneath our outward appearances and see your image in each of us. Banish in us the blindness that prevents us from recognizing truth so that we may see the world through your eyes and with the compassion of your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.
