Resemblance

We gaze at babies and say they favor their parents. At family gatherings, we tell children they look like their mothers or their fathers. We look at our own children and see ourselves, feeling a sense of pride that they are undeniably ours indeed.

Don’t we also have a deep desire to resemble our Heavenly Father? To have His eyes that see others with love? His hands that serve others with generosity?

The resemblance can become remarkable. We can become so like our Father that when people see us, they see and experience Him. We can become undeniably HIS.

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God.”
