Thought for Today

Only God is inherently holy. He defines holiness, and we become holy by coming into his presence, by avoiding sin, and by becoming more and more like him. As Christians our model of holy behavior is Christ himself. Thus the command to love our spouses and make them holy is the command to encourage them in their spiritual maturity so that they become more and more like Christ.
Dan Allender and Tremper Longman, from their book Intimate Allies

As each of us strives to be more like Christ we also have the opportunity to help those around us become more like Him as well. Think about how you treat those you love… are you modeling and encouraging Christlikeness with your words and behavior?
