Inspiration Monday: Be Imitators

Hello reader, thanks again for taking the time to drop by. This means a lot to me and also says you are willing to improve.

I have one thought for you today.

Recently I heard a pastor speak, Dr. Gerard Ruff, and he said something thought-provoking. He preached, when we were growing up it wasn’t hard for us to learn how to do bad things. Those things seemed to come naturally and we learned to do by watching, listening and imitating.  So then, why when we want to change our lives for the better and become better people doing well, do we insinuate that it’s too difficult?

There are plenty of people out in the world who are walking the walk who we can imitate, because life is nothing more than an imitation of someone else. Even if you think you are an original you are undoubtedly imitating someone else, you just may not know it yet.

If it was easy to do wrong by imitation, then it should be easy to do right by imitation and if you have an excuse for why you can’t then you are a poor imitator and if you learned all your bad habits from someone else then you know how to imitate. What I am saying here is drop the excuses and pick-up the correct reflection and imitate. As Paul said, be imitators of me as I am an imitator of Christ.

For some reason we are programmed to believe that if we want to change for the better its suppose to be a hard and tedious process. It will only be so if we make it so. Think on change, believe in change, and know that you have possession of your change, and you will see change.

Think on this and see if you are making changing for the better harder than it should be. Have a blessed day and hope to see you again tomorrow- Personal Trainer for the Mind.
