What We Love We Resemble

St. Bernard said, “What we love we shall grow to resemble.” Saint Clare of Assisi said the same: “We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become.” Perhaps this is the reason why married couples sometimes look like each other over the years. Do you love God? Are you looking more like God every day? Do your actions imitate God’s love, healing, patience, humility? Do you choose what God would want you to choose? After all, you are God’s child. Can it be said of us, “You’re the spittin’ image of your Father”?
