A spiritual view of individuality

On some mornings, to give myself a little head start on my praying, I’ve found it helpful to have a project: to be more conscious of spiritual individuality, both in myself and everyone. 

When considering people simply as mortal personalities, I find that I end up with a narrow assessment of everyone. Yet, opening up to my own and my fellow man’s infinite, spiritual nature is much more broadening, insightful—and accurate, according to the Bible.

The first chapter of Genesis relates important information about how we’re designed—that we’re made not to image forth matter, but to reflect God (see 1:26, 27). Divine Spirit’s image must necessarily be spiritual, presenting not the nature of corporeality, but the essence and character of God, who is the infinite Spirit.
