In the era of social media sites where we leave traces upon traces of ourselves behind, what are we saying about ourselves? What language do our pictures speak, our status updates, our posted links? How loud is the volume on our social media pages? Who can see the public profiles we create?
It’s time to turn down the volume, turn down the static, the status updates, and focus on two things. Who we are internally, and what type of “you” you are portraying. We were created in the image of God, meaning we look like him. We should view ourselves positively and love our bodies. To say we dislike our toes, our face, our height, is to say we dislike God. Because God lives inside us, we need to exert a positive image of him. You may be the only image of Jesus someone ever knows.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 (NIV)
