We all see different things when we look into the face of a child. Just imagine if we would behold each child as made in the image of God. Imagine if each time we saw a child, we heard God’s voice regarding God’s handiwork, declaring, “It is excellent in the eyes of the Lord.” How differently might we nurture the children of our world? How differently might we regard the children we encounter in public? How might we advocate differently…better… on behalf of the children whom we will never meet, who maybe represent only a stastistic…but who likewise bear the image of God?
Think of the responsibility we all bear for this very good, “excellent” creation and honor your likeness in each of them.
