A pastor friend of mine shared this image on his Facebook page. It really struck me, and inspired this daily water.
There are so many ways we describe each other. How often do our descriptions become discriminatory? Intentionally? Unintentionally? More often than I imagine.
As we do life with our neighbors today, I want you to keep Genesis 1:27 in front of you…
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them.”
(Genesis 1:27, NIV)
When you come face-to-face with the people you love, and maybe even like a little bit, remember that they are made in God’s image.
Every. Single. One.
Prayer: Dear Lord, sometimes I lose sight of how you made everyone in your image. Whether it’s with a dear loved one, or the person who cut me off in traffic, we all are made in your image. By the power of your Holy Spirit, help me encounter everyone today as though I am encountering you. I lift this prayer in Jesus’ holy name; amen.
