Made in God’s Image

Billions of people live on Earth today, each created by God with a unique story. At times, it is easy to forget that each person we encounter in our day-to-day lives is God’s handiwork and deserves to be treated with love, dignity and respect.

“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27 NIV

God created humans in His image. We have the distinction of being designed on the model of our creator and Lord. As such, we are treasured by Him. As Christians, we should take note that those around us are also made in the image of God. That person in line at the grocery store, that face on social media, that server at dinner — all are made in God’s image, and God cherishes them all. They are all human beings and creations of God.
