Everyone Is Glorious

I love this quote as it shows how absolutely everyone should be seen as a wonderful person - whether they have a disability or not, whether they are our friends or not, whether they are strong or smart or attractive or not ... everyone is made in the image of God and therefore has amazing qualities that we should look for and focus on:

"Scripture calls us to recognize that everyone we're ever going to meet is made in the image of God - and that means they're glorious. that's the first response, to see the glory of a person. To first see their glory and their dignity as a person made in the image of God and to treasure all the things that are good and admirable and beautiful about the person as a person made in the image of God."
