Visual DNA  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

Last night I got out the electric trimmers and gave Ethan and myself a haircut. My head feels liberated, I love a fresh cut. While I was cutting Ethan's hair it was so apparent to me that he was truly my son. He has a goofy cowlick on the front of his hairline on one side that makes it hard to cut his bangs straight, exactly like I do. He has a huge gap between his two front teeth that I can guarantee braces will not correct, because I have the same gap in my teeth that is somewhat hidden by building up ceramic to fill the gap. I'm a pretty laid back guy and E is the same way, unless you wake him up from a nap, then he turns into his mom. There are a bunch of other things but these are just a few of the things that are an outward indication that he is from me. This got me thinking about how God is our heavenly father and we were created in his image. I think sometimes it is hard for people to see that though, in themselves as well as others. We tend to cover and hide these things with what we want to be and not what He wants us to be.

We should take a look at ourselves in the mirror, with fresh eyes and ask the question. Is it obvious to anyone who looks who my Father really is?


Wow. Not where I thought you were taking that. Very well said. Thank you.

great analogy!
