"There is a great scene in the 1975 movie ‘Jaws’. The Constable, played by Roy Scheider is at the dining room table lost in thought over this problem with the killer shark that’s terrorizing the water ways. Suddenly he looks out the corner of his eye and realizes his small boy is copying his every move. So he pretends not to have noticed, and a very touching scene ensues as the boy’s intent mimicking draws Dad away from his troubles and steals his heart.


Now it’s not something we encourage our children to do. They do it because they love us and they want to be like us. It can be detrimental to them when we have bad habits, and it can be a good thing when they mimic and eventually internalize the good that comes from us.


One thing I know; it blesses a father’s heart when he suddenly realizes one day that his boy wants to be just like him. And that’s what Paul is telling us would bless our Father in Heaven."
