Copy Cat

The other day in the church nursery, one of our junior teens was playing around with Baby A. He would pretend to throw his arms up in the air and then fall down on the ground.  After a few times, Baby A started copying him.  Then later, Justin shook the crib bars and once again Baby A started to copy him.  Over and over, baby A copied.  I've noticed that he copies us so much. There have been times that hubby or I laugh and then he laughs. We start to smile and he smiles. This is definitely a reminder to us to do things that we want him to copy, but more than even that, I think we need to be like this with our Lord.

II Corinthians 3:18 says "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."

When we peer into the mirror of God's Word, we too will be changed into it. When He smiles, we smile. When He is sad, we should be sad. When He loves on children, we should love on children.  When he gives to the poor, we too should give. You can't go wrong copying Jesus. - rejoicing in the present.
