Genesis proposes that each of us is created in the image and likeness of God. What a glorious and mysterious reality! Why, then, do I constantly catch myself trying to constrain God as somehow being made in the image of humanity?
When I think about it for a moment, I realize that I don’t want a petty, cruel and selfish deity like me. I want a God who sends his Son to walk among us and who became our Savior. But I still insist on trying to cut God down to size. Why?
