I read something the other day that challenged me. I don’t even remember the whole context or exactly what the author was saying. I’ve been reading so many things lately that I can’t even be sure which author mentioned this phrase. But the idea was about seeing other people as bearers of God’s image.
So I’ve been thinking about how my actions, my thoughts, my attitudes might change if I really begin to view everyone I come into contact with as an image-bearer. I mean, can I really be rude to someone when I’m thinking of them as God’s own image-bearer? Even people who aren’t followers of Christ bear His image.
This is still pretty fresh in my mind, so I don’t have a whole lot to say about it; but I want to challenge you as I challenge myself. How might we impact our family, our church, our community, our world if we consciously choose to see everybody around us as image-bearers?
