Follow God's example in everything youDear God,
do just as a much loved child imitates his
father. Ephesians 5:1
I must admit that I look at people and
sometimes try to follow their example
but often I am let down.
My children follow me and I know at times they,
too, are let down.
God, here it is plain and clear and straight from
Your Word - I am to follow Your example.
This is hard for me to do because both of us
know me really well. Yet, I am to follow You,
God, as my leader.
Lord, I am not always sure that I will be able to
follow You, but I will try.
This week as I face problems,
people with needs,
and people who may be against me,
may I not only follow Your example, but may I
follow the principles You have lovingly stated
for me to follow.
God, I thank You that I will be better able to
lead others, as I follow you.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
