Imitation Games

 

I have this hobby of imitating dances that I like. It’s mostly for likes and popularity entertainment  and health. It’s easy to imitate someone on the outside, it’s harder to imitate who they are on the inside.

While I’m sure there are those in this individualistic-driven economy who would disagree with me (leave it in the comments), we’re all imitators in our own right. Our “originality” is a product of years sponging off a plethora of influences mixed in with our character and personality. To paraphrase my Management II lecturer,

There is no such thing as an original thought. Admit, embrace and acknowledge that or you will be expelled for plagiarism.

Australians don’t take to copyright infringement very well.

My point is, there are parts of us daily that are taking shape from external forces; which begs the question:

So, who are we imitating?

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered Himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

Ephesians 5:1-2
