Becoming More Christlike

What are some of the attributes of Jesus Christ?
 Which of these attributes would you like to develop? 


  1. Some Christ-like attributes include meekness, forgiveness, and cheerfulness. Cheerfulness is one that I particularly want to focus my energy on right now. I feel it's about replacing pessimism with optimism, irritation with patience, and anger with forgiveness. I believe that God is only stern when He needs to be, and that He much prefers it when He can be cheerful.

  2. Patience. I think I should focus on being more patient, with myself and especially others. At times I can get so frustrated because I want things done now and my way. That isn't right. I need to love others for what they can do and how they do it. Christ shows tremendous patience with me, He loves me even with my faults and I want to learn to be like Him.

  3. One of the attributes of Christ that I would like to work on is charity. I would like to be more understanding and loving towards other people. Sometimes I get frustrated with others, especially if they treat me unkindly but Christ showed love to others even when they were mocking and scorning him and I want to do the same. I want to always remember that everyone is a child of God and treat them accordingly.
