What do you see when you look in the mirror.
- Genesis 1:27
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Did God say oops, I must have made a mistake I know he should look like a model, a perfect chin a set of biceps that will get attention. His hair is a bit thin and I see a bald spot starting.
Oh look a little to much around the waist, and a zit right on his nose, I must have blown it on this one, Oh well I can just whip up another one.
Crazy, yep. The elephant looks in the mirror and sees an elephant, we look in the mirror and see what, fill in the blank

When we take on the job of deciding what the image of God is, and how we can or should live up to that image I think we set ourselves up for a major let down.
We were created in His image, we need to look at ourselves as His creation made as He sees fit. I can not change the image I was given but I can change the way I see it. I can see it through the reflective mirror of Jesus and His work, complete in what He has done. Complete in who He says I am.
