In the movie Life Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence were in a scene when prisoners were lined up and asked if they were the father of a baby. This was a comical scene, but very important to the grandfather of the child. It is very important who we yoke up with, but that’s another story…
In the movie, someone stepped up and said ‘I Da Pappy’. Lol. It was evident that he was not.

Or are we the child of another?
I challenge you to manifest His behavior in every arena.
I challenge Christians to spend more time with the Lord – to spend more time in His word.
And to do it so much so that we are His reflection. 🙂
