Daily Digest #269

Be imitators of God . . . and walk in love. —Ephesians 5:1-2

We usually feel the pressure of setting a good example to people who look up to us, that we sometimes "act" righteously out of obligation. What we do not realize is that our real attitude reflects in every situation or person that we encounter, usually when we think no one is watching. When love and kindness are not natural elements in our lives, we become pretentious people-pleasers, elevating ourselves like models or saints in front of many.

For this, let us pray. May we learn to imitate Jesus instead of what society tells us to be. May we cherish relationships that bring us closer to God, those that have taught, and are continuously teaching us more about love, kindness, respect, generosity, patience and forgiveness. May others see Christ in us. Pray always.
