I Am Good

Dear Humans,

The Genesis creation stories tell us a couple of things about being human. First, we are “good.” God saw everything that God had made and it was good (Genesis 1:10,18, 21, 24, 31) Along with all other creatures, plants and all creation, we are “good.”

The second thing the story reminds us is that humans all bear “the image of God."(Genesis 1:27) Women, men, children, refugee, rich, poor, old, or young -we all bear the “image” of God. Regardless of our religious practice, race, marital status or nationality, we all bear the ”image of God.”

When you feel alone or wounded may the mantra your creator sends to your heart be,“I am good, and created in the image of God.” Let us trust in this truth.

Hold the refugees fleeing Syria in your prayers for theyaregood and of the image of God. Hold up each candidate for President of the United States in prayer, for regardless of your political affiliation, they are good and of the image of God. Those who you work beside and live under a common roof with are, believe it or not, human beings that are good and created in the image of our Creator.

See Genesis Chapters 1, 2 and 3 for further reflection.

Thank you to Brian McLaren for inspiring these thoughts today from his book “WE MAKE the ROAD by WALKING.”

Still in one peace,
Pastor David J. Jensen
