To seek God’s face—what it means to me

I’ve come across some humorous images on my Facebook News Feed of people looking in the mirror and being horrified at the reflection of an aging body. It’s as if the people in the images are saying, “How could this picture possibly be the me I know and love?” My friends and I laugh, but the truth is, we often find ourselves sorely disappointed to have arrived at such a wrinkly state.

However, it occurred to me recently that by accepting such a material picture of ourselves, we are actually disrespecting God. After all, aren’t we made in the image and likeness of God, as it says in the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible? The answer, of course, is yes! The substance of God’s image, a spiritual idea, is Spirit, not pitiful flesh. If we want to honor and respect God, it’s essential to see ourselves as made in God’s spiritual image; as expressions of divine Love.
