Seeing God in Others

If you want to learn of ways to make your portion of this world better – to offer you practical solutions to improve your life, how do you think would be a good way to do that? If we recognize the importance of physical and mental fitness, then we could study those subjects through research and education. We can read books, magazine articles, and browse websites looking for the latest on how good health and modern medicine offer us ways to do that.

     Speaking of education and learning, the highest form of knowledge, bar none, is a working knowledge of God. We can achieve this through honest and diligent study of His divinely-inspired Word, along with a healthy respect and appreciation for His amazing creation – so accessibly all around us. Therefore, because of God’s gracious love in creating us in His image and offering us a way to be with Him forever, we need to feel motivated enough to believe in ourselves and become the very best image of Him that we can be!

     I suppose some people can have and display a decent moral character without “going to church” and being religious. This is apparent as we watch and study our “good neighbors.” But, as John H. Waddy quotes a J. Kennedy, “The character of an individual or a group can only be built on a foundation of moral values and there can be no morality without religion.” 

        “We have staked the whole future of America’s civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it, but upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to sustain ourselves, according to the Ten Commandments of God.” – Will Durant 

        “For all people are mine to judge—both parents and children alike. And this is my rule: The person who sins is the one who will die.” (Ezekiel 18:4, NLT)      

        “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become (emphasis mine, JD) children of God.” (John 1:12)
