Therefore be imitators of God as dear children...And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma...
This is really pretty self explanatory, we are to pattern ourselves after Jesus, use Him as our example of how to live our lives..Kids usually don't have to be taught to imitate their parents, it is just something they do...I remember when Joe was young he so wanted to be like his dad he did everything he could to "copy" him..and that included of course dressing like he did. He would put on his little Easter jacket (which I had to cut in the back so it looked just like daddy's) and get his little brief case and pretend he was going off to work...think of how much better off we would be if we imitated Christ just that carefully...we could then live our lives loving those around us and giving of ourselves just as He did for us....I'd like to think I might be a "sweet-smelling aroma" and not a foul-reeking stench...haha
