Christ is the template of our lives: our model, our example, the Way.
It's the small things that add up to make the whole person. We have choices. We can choose to make a negative remark or to hold it back, to smile when we want to frown, to shift our position just a few degrees to see if the situation might look different. We can binge-watch our favorite program, or we can take that time to make soup and deliver it to a friend who is ill.
We can tell the bus driver what a great job he is doing and watch his smile light up his face and light up the day.
We grow into Christ through a multitude of small choices: every day, every way.
