have you ever notice young children? at times, they learn through the process of imitation - following the actions of an adult/parent. spoons go to the mouth, then we open the mouth, chew chew chew.

how about us? we do follow in the footsteps of the people we admire. we imitate actions that resemble our heroes. even when children imitate our actions, we take it as a compliment.

the Christmas season is once again upon us, and let's never forget what it really means to give. to give generously and to live generously. we offer our lives as a living sacrifice to God because we do owe Him so much gratitude. we'll never be able to repay God for His precious gift to us. He came down to earth from His Heavenly throne to save us. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

there is no greater compliment than imitation. God gives to the undeserving, to the ungrateful, to the unsuspecting without condition. God is all about giving, and we can please our Heavenly Father by imitating His nature of giving.

instead of the 'me, me, me' outlook- look around you this Christmas season. you'll be amazed to find so many people in need of God's love. and we are His ambassadors. this also applies to us as Christians, that we also give generously through means of financial faithfulness. it is better to give than to receive :)
