Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
When I give paints to a young child, the first thing they do is smile. Most often, the colors get very stirred up and they have many exciting discoveries mixing all the other colors from red, yellow, and blue. Children enjoy the process and freely share their creations with others. They give their joyful work to those they love. Be thankful for a child’s scribbles. Likewise, forgive yourselfself for being imperfect in recreating the incredible beauty we receive from Jesus. Walk in love, my friends.
