Like Father, Like…
Proverbs 23:26 – My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways.
I truly believe that the more time we spend with God, the more we naturally strive to become like Him. The more we study what He does, says and thinks, the more similarly we do, say and think.
If we fix our eyes on Him and His Word, delighting in His ways, we will grow to become more and more like Him.
Just like the saying oh like Father, like son! Or like mother, like daughter!
As His children, we will learn his traits. We’ll learn His gentle, unforced rhythms of grace. Learning to love without limits, forgive without boundaries and live righteously. We’ll never be perfect, but we can always have the best intentions. The Bible says how God sees and knows your heart. So when you give your heart completely to Him, He’ll acknowledge and honour that. He’ll protect it and keep pointing you back to Him when you may be lead astray.
Just like a father looks out for his children, He looks out for you.
