Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground.”
God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them, saying: “Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it. . . .
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good. Gn_1:20—2:4a
MADE in His image and likeness!
And sent to multiply!
God loves His Creation SO very much that he continues to bless us with His holy grace, with His unconditional love and with His promise of Eternal life. Now it’s up to us to choose to partake in His Gifts. It’s up to us to believe in His Son, Jesus and to follow His healing and life-giving commands. LOVE and multiply, just as God loves us – unconditionally – everyone!
(Oh, and by the way, happy birthday Abe … Abraham Lincoln! And thanks for all you did for human rights, for justice, for love of God and for all mankind!)
