The chaplain at our CMA,or Christian Motorcyclists Association,chapter meeting gave a wonderful devotional called, "Who's Your Daddy?" The highlights of the devotional are written below and I hope you find it as thought provoking as I did.
My Role Model
As I grew up, my dad became an alcoholic with all of the attendant behavior. That was my role model.
Jesus's Role Model
Jesus knew who his daddy was. Jesus gave every evidence of following his father's model in his actions and behaviors.
just as the Father knows me and I know the Father--and I lay down my life for the sheep.
Below are three more scriptures that accompanied the devotional:
Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky
My Heavenly Role Model
Am I showing that Jesus is my heavenly role model in my own actions and behaviors?
Am I on my daddy's mission?
