One of the most hopeful and scariest parts of parenting is knowing that your children will imitate what they see you do. When your children are sweet and thoughtful toward others around them, you like to take credit for your child-rearing abilities. We get a dose of humility, however, when we hear them say something cringeworthy that sounds just like us. Children imitate what they see. Because we are God’s children, Paul encourages us to imitate Christ’s humility as demonstrated by his incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and exaltation.
