Christian parents are faced with the challenge of living a Christ-like life in front of their children. As imperfect people, we struggle to show Christ’s attitude and love to our children, even when life is hard.
Christian contemporary group, Find Favour, tugs at the heartstrings of Christian parents with their song “Be Like You.” This beautiful song and video speaks to our need to live like Christ because our children want to be like us.
Finally turned five and he looks like me
Always playing baseball or climbing up some tree
God I know he won’t always be this young
Let him grow up proud to be his daddy’s son
I want to love him like You love me
give him everything I can
I want to live a life that’s holy
and be a better man
You could have chosen any body
but I’m the one You gave him to
If he’s gonna be like me
Then God I want to be like You
Are we living up to the challenge of being like Christ because our children want to be like us?
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” (Ephesians 5:1-2).
