Rick Beckman has a wonderful post on his blog discussing man as the image-bearer of God and how that should influence Christian behavior towards all men, especially at Christmas. You are doing yourself an injustice if you do not read his post. His post should influence the way you view others as well as yourself.
May I treat others with the dignity they deserve as image-bearers of God.
May I reach out in love to share the Gospel to those individuals that I would not normally speak to because of their outward image.
