Children as Image-bearers

November 22, 2011

I ran across this terrific article at the Gospel Driven Life blog on parenting (HT: Trevin Wax). It discusses our children as image-bearers. The author says about our kids:

They are image bear­ers.  They are crea­tures, made by God and for God.  They are given glory and honor by God.  They have inher­ent value, of greater worth than ani­mals.  How we treat the image of God is how we treat God.  The dig­nity of humans is built into the Law and the Prophets and the Gospel.  And we must see our chil­dren as image bearers.

I encourage you to go and read the whole thing, especially as this theology is worked out practically in day to day live. Click here for the rest: Parents and the Image of God | Gospel Driven Life.
