Sometimes I have a hard time believing that God made us in His image… When I look around at all the small-mindedness and suffering humans swim around in, I wonder – are we just a bad copy of a copy of a copy, a Multiplicity gone wrong to the tenth degree?
Then my imagination pulls the emergency brake on that train of thought…
Because I imagine people being so much better than they currently are. I imagine change and growth, and stingy hearts growing three sizes bigger… I imagine injustices being set right, and funds released to help the poverty-stricken. I imagine forgiveness flowing in impossible situations.
I imagine all those things because I have smelled them and felt them and watched them happen. I know they will happen again.
And when I imagine change, and see change, and help make change happen – I know I am not the only one doing it…
Which tells me YES – we are made in God’s image.
Let’s live like it.
