Genesis 1:25. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the cattle according to their kinds, and all the creatures that creep along the ground according to their kinds. God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:27. God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. 

I like to watch nature shows.  I was watching one on migratory birds and marveled at the patience of the video takers.  As I watched I was impressed with each species doing what God created them to do.  Then it occurred to me we are the only species that don!t do what God created us to do.  He created us to be in His image.  God is love and His image is love.  We try to create our own image of ourselves and fall far short of being an image of God’s love.  Our question is are we willing to let God, through the power of His Holy Spirit shape us back into the image He created?  He sent the Word, His Son, Jesus, to show us how we would look.
