Imago Dei

Observe your internal images.
How do you see yourself?
What do you imagine?
Do you imagine yourself in a big house when you pass it?
Do you imagine yourself more handsome or beautiful than so and so?
Smarter than the other guy?
Watch your internal images and when they occur write them down.
At the end of the day reflect on what you’ve written.
Are your images of yourself conforming to the image of God?
