Image can be such a tricky concept. What we perceive our own image to be and how we see others. People are paid big bucks to work on the image of celebrities and politicians. Obviously I don’t run in the kind of crowd where I have people to groom my image for me, but still I have been given some direction for what my image is.
Gen 1:27 (NLT) So God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself, male and female he created them
I have to say this concept can twist my mind in amazing ways. My image is not about how I look, how I dress, what I can say or who I am seen with. My image is about love, righteousness, truthful, joyful, trust, patience and the list goes on.
How screwed up can we possibly get when we lower our eyes to compare ourselves with one another, instead of looking into the mirror of the one who made us? What I behold I will become and let me tell you, I’m not looking at today’s flavor of the month. I am setting my eyes on the very one who created beauty and understands what my image is to be.
