It Is Well With My Soul

“Brothers and sisters, join in imitating me, and observe those who live according to the example you have in us.” – Philippians 3:17

One of the early lessons I learned in life was to imitate those whom I respected. First, it was my father, who exemplified living according to the principles of Christ and taught me to live accordingly. Then it was my two aunts, who were stalwarts of Franklin Avenue Methodist Church in Portsmouth, Ohio, and preserved much of the church’s memorabilia. Then it was the couple who acted as Christian mentors for us young adult Christians. And then there were more…

Dear God, I pray that I not only learned to imitate the Christian examples You provided, but also that I will in turn take the opportunities to help mentor others by providing good examples of the Christian life. You faithfully give me positive feedback when I do so! Amen.
