The children of God and the Second Commandment

It isn't surprising that the image industry, as it has been called, is growing. "Image Consultants" is now a heading in the Yellow Pages in many telephone directories. An image consultant will help develop a favorable image for you, the client, to present to others—as representative of yourself, your business, and so forth.

Of course, the most favorable image that can be presented to anyone is the image that God, Spirit, alone can and does create—spiritual man, the image, or representation, of God Himself. Man expressing the nature of God is the image Christ Jesus consistently presented to the world through his spirituality and his healing works. His success in doing so was due to the fact that he was the Son of God and to his constant communion with God in prayer.

God is eternal Life, Truth, and Love. And the function of God's image, man, is to represent Him—to reflect His creative and infallible goodness, His just and merciful government, His tender care of His creation. This spiritual representation of God is your and my true selfhood, the image we surely want to identity with and be identified with by others.
