I recently heard a comedian speak out against human cloning. He didn’t oppose it for ethical reasons. His thinking was, “Do we really need more people…exactly like the ones we already have!?”
I suppose that thought might be a good discussion starter. There certainly are a number of misbehaving people in this world, and we definitely don’t need more individuals like that.
However, there are many who try their best to be like Jesus. He is their example for living, and while they sometimes fall short in their efforts to follow in the steps of their role model, they succeed often enough to make this world a better place. We sure could use more people like that!
Let’s produce more of those people. The process is called “making disciples”.
“Therefore, go and make disciples…”—Matthew 28:19.
“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”—1 Corinthians 11:1.
