Ephesians Five: Look What I Can Do!

Posted: January 2, 2012 in Ephesians

As I was blogging last night in Gracelyn’s nursery, my 2-year old son came in, climbed up on the crib to look over the rail, and then said “Hello Babygirl.” We didn’t teach him that phrase, but he’s heard me use it enough that he’s absorbed it into his vocabulary. He does this a lot- sometimes to my chagrin, lol. You gotta be careful what you say around a toddler; they like to play “parrot” sometimes. You can see kids doing the same while playing pretend. Whether it’s “baking” a cake or driving cars, we don’t have to look far to see children who are imitating their parents.

Paul uses this imagery in verse one of this chapter as he says, “be imitators of God, as beloved children.” I love seeing my son imitate me, but that is only a faith picture of how God delights in seeing us walk, talk, feel, and think as He does. Let’s try harder to make sure that the way we live is a reflection of how Jesus lived.
