I am wonderfully made in God’s image! Do you ever think about yourself like that—that you are wonderfully made in God’s image? We tend to forget about all of the wonder that went into making us as we become grown- ups. Time has a way of dulling our shine. It’s part of the reason why people have to prod us to ‘say cheese’ when they take our picture.
I think if we really, really, really believed that we are wonderfully made in God’s image, no one would ever have to tell us to smile when they pulled out a camera. We would be smiling from ear-to-ear as we lived in the wonder that God made me!
That is what we want for our children. We want them to smile with confidence, because they know God made me.
