In the mega store employees are required to greet me.
They ask if they can help. I say, “No, but thank you for asking.” One particularly persistent young woman asks how I am doing and if my day is good and if I have some time to talk about switching to satellite television. I tell her thank you for asking but we are happy with what we have. That was it. Nothing particularly gracious.
And you know what she said? “Thank you for not running away.”
Can you believe it?
This young woman made in the image of God had to thank me for treating her as such. Yikes. Shouldn’t it be the default response?
So today I want to celebrate our ‘image of God’ ness and share a few of my thousand favorite photos of folks made in the image of God.
