The Image of God

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

Have you ever known someone who did not look anything like they did as a child? Did their mother have one of those photo frames, which held each year’s school picture and you thought it looked like thirteen different children? As they grow up, some people look fairly the same until their awkward teen years hit; they look more like a Picasso painting, then to only change again into remarkably attractive people. Other people are born as miniatures of their adult selves. As they grow, they basically just get bigger and more proportional. One thing for sure about who we are, God created us all to be in His image, no matter what we may look like along the way.  It is amazing to think, that we are His children and created in His likeness.
