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

Copy = to imitate, reproduce, duplicate (from

From the time we are born, we learn to copy. Babies copy our voice inflections and sounds. Actually, so much of their movements and actions are duplicated from what they see in us.

We often want to duplicate hair and fashion styles to put our best foot forward.

We use a copier machine to replicate important papers.

Sadly, we can often copy the behaviors of those around us. This is where we have to be on our guard or we will become like the society around us.

But what if we were to copy the behavior of Another?

If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you.”
(John 13:13-14, NASB)

What if we were to copy the example of Jesus and wash feet,
serve others,
and love well?

That’s the question I’m pondering today.
