Flowers, they have to be one of God’s greatest examples (outside of grandchildren) of His love for us. You may be sitting there saying, “REALLY!”, but think about all the different types, colors and fragrances. I get so much pleasure and relaxation just by walking through my flower bed, even if it’s just for a few minutes. As much pleasure as I get out of my flowers and my grandchildren, Christ has given me even that much more pleasure……..
HE is God’s Greatest Example
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
I wake each morning with no options but to love. Now you may say, “Wait a minute, we always have options!”, but we don’t if we’re truly wanting to live a life following God’s example. Just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us. I say, “what other option do I have?”. And why would I even question it? God and Christ has given so much, I could never out give, so the time I have here, I pray that I’m being the best me I can be for Him.
So I encourage you, look to God’s greatest example Christ as a way to live your life. Ask yourself, “Am I being the best me I can be for Him?”.
Lord, I thank You for giving your best for me. I thank You for always being beside me and never giving up on me. I thank you for walking next to me and walking in front of me. I ask You to continue to help me be brave. Amen!
