“I show [my wife] I love her by also loving what she creates. So it is with God. We can’t say we love him if we don’t also love what he has created. This applies to people of different races, cultures, and countries. Since everyone is made in the image of God, everyone has worth and everyone has dignity. You want to radically change how you see others? See them as fellow image bearers—broken just like you, but image bearers nonetheless.
We love God by loving his people.”
-Jefferson Bethke, Jesus > Religion (Thomas Nelson, 2013), 158
