God made us like him. When an artist makes a sculpture of someone, it looks like them but it is not them. When God made us in his image we look like him but we are not exactly the same (cause we are not God obviously). Unlike all the rest of God's creation, you have a spirit. How awesome is it that you are made like the creator of the universe. You are not pond scum or a bug, you are made like God. And God is love. He is fair, powerful, merciful, patient, forgiving, unchanging, generous, compassionate, fearless, eternal... I could go on all day. So, next time your inner mean girl tells you you are worthless, or stupid, or a failure... remember Genesis 1:27 - you are made in God's image.
