Who Do You Imitate?

By: Robert Martin 

I went for a run recently and the person in front of me signalled right as he turned a corner – and so as I turned the same corner I also inadvertently signalled right.

It made me realise that we, as humans, imitate others.

When we see another person yawn – we automatically yawn.

It’s why celebrities and influencers promote and sell products.

Humans are naturally prone to imitate others. So who do you imitate? Maybe it’s wise to find good influences in your life?

The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”

Paul chose Jesus Christ to imitate – and Jesus has been described as the ‘best of all men’.

So maybe it’s worth looking at the life of Jesus and learning from him for he might be the best one to imitate.

Bible reference: 1 Corinthians 11:1
