“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” ( Genesis 1:26 )

No matter what people say about you, we aren’t accidents of nature, and we aren’t mistakes. Almighty God has made us, and He has imprinted His image on us. Sin has tarnished that image, but we still possess a portion of the dignity God originally imparted to Adam and Eve in the garden. If we see ourselves who is a descendant of royalty and a person of infinite worth we instantly realize two things. We desperately need the grace of God to forgive us when we fail to live up to our identity, and we need to conform our lives to fit our status as God’s kids. We should stop monkeying around and begin to act like the children of God so we will be a reflection of all He desires us to be.
