Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Like.

“Like” – to be the same as, to have the same character.

This is the definition which first came to mind; and the first question to come to mind was: What am I to be like?

Be like a child …

“And He called a child to Himself and set him among them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you change and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. So whoever will humble himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:2-4, NASB)

Quiet myself like a child …

I have certainly soothed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child resting against his mother, My soul within me is like a weaned child.” (Psalm 131:2, NASB)

Speak words like honey …

“Kind words are like honey ”“  sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”
(Proverbs 16:24, NLT)

Love like Jesus …

“We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives as well.” (1 Thessalonians 2:8, NLT)

Pray like Jesus:

“Pray, then, in this way: ”˜Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. ”˜Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. ”˜Give us this day our daily bread. ”˜And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. ”˜And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’(Matthew 6:8-13, NASB)

Be like God …

“The true expression of Christian character is not in good-doing, but in God-likeness. If the Spirit of God has transformed you within, you will exhibit divine characteristics in your life, not just human characteristics. God’s life in us expresses itself as God’s life, not as human life trying to be godly.” (Oswald Chambers)
