A Matter of Perspective

I just came across the following remark — not for the first time — and wondered why some people seem to believe that …

we are each of us an expression of God

I suppose if a person concedes the existence of “God,” then yes, there are similarities in that humans tend to exhibit the same attributes of anger and forgiveness. They also tend to favor a “get even” attitude when someone doesn’t meet their expectations. And on occasion, they have even been known to exhibit a measure of love that might be described as “god-like.”

On the other hand, if (as many believe) “God” was originally created by humans, then perhaps the “expression of God” is nothing more than what we see in ourselves.

I suppose it’s all a matter of perspective.
