God made us in his own image. We are to reflect his nature, including his character traits. We have the potential to be loving, truthful, patient, forgiving, kind, and faithful. Being made in God’s image does not mean you are a god, or even godly, but that you hae many of the characteristics of God himself. God wants us to use them as he uses them–to honor and benefit others.
Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who turn many to righteousness will shine like stars forever. Daniel 12:3
