1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Ephesians 5 starts out telling us who we should be following. And that we should do it as children. Dear children. Not hard headed children. A dear child will willingly obey and follow where the parent leads. In this case the parent is God and we are the children. Are you following God as a dear child? Or as a hard headed or hard hearted child? Your attitude toward others will reveal very quickly which one you are being.
I hope in the next few days to work my way through Ephesians taking one or more verses each day and meditating on them and sharing my heart.
