Who Do You Imitate?

We all have our heroes.  I always looked up to Jack LaLanne, a fitness guru who inspired others right up to his death at the age of 96.  Before he passed away, he mailed me an autographed 8x10 photo with a kind note.  I have several close cousins who motivate me to be a better husband and father.  The best role model I have is Jesus.  Here's a list of reasons why I believe you should follow Him.

  1. He trusts His Father and knows His Father's plans are the best plans.
  2. He loves you unconditionally and always wants the best for you.
  3. He forgives.
  4. He has power over death.
  5. He heals.
  6. He knows what you need.
  7. He is the best teacher to ever walk the planet and leads by example.
  8. He keeps His promises.
  9. He will stand by you even when the world won't.
  10. He is always there when you need Him.
There are times when I fall short.  There are times when I don't understand God's plan for my life.  I do my best to imitate Jesus.  He knows how to make all things new.  Want to be a part of all things new?  Follow Him.  Your life will never be the same.

Please feel free to add your comments.  I would love to hear who you imitate.  Thanks for adding to the conversation.

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's
both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

I am starting up a online blog directory and was wondering if I
can submit your site? I'm hoping to grow my directory gradually by hand so that it retains good quality. I will make sure and put your website in the best category and I'll also use,
"Blogger: SoCalMulligan808" as your anchor text. Be sure to let me know
if this is ok with you by mailing me at: ethan-negron@gmail.
com. Thank you

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in
Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post
to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
