If we would be like our Master
(J. R. Miller, "Living Without Worry")

"Whoever claims to live in Him--must walk as
 Jesus did."
1 John 2:6

Every true Christian should desire to be Christlike in
. It is not enough to be honest, and upright,
and true, and just. Christ had these strong qualities
--but He was also gentle, and kind, and loving, and
patient. If we would be like our Master--we must
have these traits of character also in us. When we pray
that the beauty of the Lord may be upon us, we must
ask for these finer features of His beauty--as well as
for the more rugged ones. We need His strength and
truth and faithfulness and justice--but we need His
love and tenderness as well. "Leaving you an example,
so that you should follow in His steps." 1 Peter 2:21
