We’re made in the image of our higher power to be an imaginative life-force using our skills and talents, the tools of our trade, to enhance the world.
But somewhere along the line there’s a tension, a friction arises within us as a result of life’s experiences. People criticize us. Condemn us. We begin to doubt ourselves, to question our basic goodness. And so we ramble through life struggling with two underlying questions: Am I good? Am I good enough?
We need to nail the truth that we are good. We need to fasten and hammer that truth into our heads and hearts so we stop doubting our fundamental nature: God, the creator made us in his likeness, so, we are good.
That’s how we’re made and wired, fastened and nailed together: fundamentally good.
