I came across a Hungarian Proverb that said, “Adam ate the apple, and our teeth still ache.” What do you think this means? Let’s take a few minutes to think about this together.
It’s challenging to live out the image and likeness of God when sin is always at our door. But it is possible! The most powerful action we can take is actively representing God with our ability to love. That’s how we can and will make a difference in the lives of others.
Discuss this with your family. How are you each created to responsibly serve God and others around you? Ask yourselves how you can better be the face and image of God in your family and community?
What makes us human is our incomprehensible value to God. He loves you and your family more than you could ever imagine! Pass that love on, my friends. May God bless each of you.
