Family Devotion: In His Image

by Amy Cobb

genesis-1-27Play: Ask each of your kids to look in a mirror and tell you what they see: eye and hair color, freckles, glasses, a missing tooth — everything!

Talk: When we look in a mirror, we see our own images. God created us in His image (Genesis 1:27), but that doesn't mean that we all look alike or look like God. It means that we are like God in some ways. We don't just have bodies and minds; we have spirits and emotions, just as God does. He created many wonderful things, such as oceans, trees and animals, but only people are created in God's image. In what ways are we like God, and in what ways are we different from Him?

Pray: Thank God for loving us and for creating us in His image.
