Practical Christianity: Genesis 1:31

In my Common English Bible, the passage Genesis 1:31 reads:
“God saw everything he had made: it was supremely good.”
This chapter of Genesis is telling the story of the creation of the earth and mankind.  You remember the story, "In the beginning..."

Can’t you just picture God standing back looking at his handy work, cocking his head to the side, a slow smile appearing on his face, saying to himself - wow that rocks!  (In my own words, of course.)

God made ME and said I am supremely good.

God made YOU and said YOU are supremely good.

God made HER and said she is supremely good.

God made HIM and said he is supremely good.

Do you get it yet? Me, you and him and her WE ARE ALL PERFECT in God’s eyes.

The next time you are looking in the mirror, look with God’s eyes and not your own destructive thoughts.

You are not ugly, you are supremely good.

You are not fat, you are supremely good.

You’re nose isn’t too big, you are supremely good.

Now…here’s the hard part.  Think about  that person who is being rude to you or has wronged you in someway?  Just as you are about to retaliate or talk badly and/or never forgive him/her, remember…God made him/her too!  Then He said, (s)he is supremely good.  There are amazing qualities about that person.  Look at him/her through God’s eyes and not your destructive thoughts.  See how much differently you view that person.

Remember:  God made me, you him and her and said you are supremely good!
