Daily Devotion – 16 January 2023

I admire certain people more than I do others.   I have my favorite people in history.  I have clear ideas about the kind of women I'd like my daughters to be.

We have our admirations.  And it's a good thing.   If those we admire the most are honest, decent, reliable and respected, we may, indeed, become more like them.

Which is precisely why we Christians have a single model:  Jesus the Christ.

My question for today is:  Are other people I admire like Jesus?

None of course approaches the excellence of Jesus, but several do a really fine job of emulating his teachings.

How we conduct ourselves, how important that is, even when we are unaware others are watching.  They are.

Let's be the most "models of Christ" we can be.
