Who Wants to be Like You?

By Allen White

Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

This passage can seem to be a little intimidating. Most feel that they don’t measure up. So, for a minute, let’s look at this verse as the reader and not the writer.

Who do you know that you would like to be like? Now, nobody’s perfect. But, what Christ-like qualities do you admire in another? What if you asked that person to be your mentor? Since none of us are 100 percent there, it might be a good idea to even have a few mentors for different areas in our lives. As long as they are following God’s Word in their lives, they will be great teachers and examples for us to follow.
You can even choose a mentor that you’ve never met or may never meet by reading their books, following their tweets or listening to their teaching. What areas do you need to grow in? Who excels in that area already? Find their resources and begin spending time with them. Before you know it, you’ll hear what they say and think, “That sounds like something I would say.” Then, you know that what they’re teaching is sticking! And, in the process others will choose to follow us.
