Snowflake pattern.  Is that an oxymoron?  Isn’t every snowflake unique?  Then why was I given a pattern to follow in second grade when cutting snowflakes and hanging them on a thread?

We are to pattern our lives on the life of Christ. The author of Philippians writes that he wants to know “how to share in his [Christ’s] suffering by being formed into the pattern of his death” (3:10). But is patterning our life on Christ’s life akin to oxymoron?  God made each of us unique. While patterning my life on Christ’s gives God honor, I think I honor God more by being fully who I am created to be—one of a kind.

    Excellent point Sister, however our lives are uniquely different then Jesus, yet we can live by his word uniquely too. Loving one another may be very different for me than it is for you, yet love one another we do. My God is full of riddles and jokes, he is hilarious probably laughing at or with us right now:-)
