Now the verse tells us to imitate God. You see, there is none that can compare to our God. He is the best at what He does. Nobody loves like Him. John 3:16 says, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” No one can put a price on the value on God’s love. Love influences the actions of man of the earth. So if you want to imitate anyone, imitate God and His love. You will find it would make a difference in your life.
