Who do you take after?

To ‘take after someone’ means to resemble someone, especially a parent, grandparent, or other predecessor, in appearance, temperament, or character. We can either be proud of the fact that we take after someone, or it can be a bit of an embarrassment. Nobody wants to take after an unsavoury character. Often, especially in our younger years, we take great effort to imitate someone we admire and respect. We can also go out of our way to not be like someone we detest. And yet, we cannot choose who we look like and sometimes those genes do manifest in certain characteristics.

We cannot choose our family, but graciously God chose us and made us his children. “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1a) For “to all who believed him (Jesus Christ) and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” (Joh 1:12)

The question is whether we are proud of being God’s children and therefore cultivate our heavenly Father’s characteristics in us, or if we aspire to be like someone other than God. As God’s children we can resemble God in appearance, temperament and character.

Blessings
