26 Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the Sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground."
God created man to be the image of Himself. He says that they will reign over all other living organisms. God wanted man to be at the highest stature on earth since He reigns in heaven. This verse insignificant because it shows we have power in ourselves and each other. If we reign over the living creatures and God created us to be an image of Him, what do we have to fear? The only thing we have to fear is man itself. God created us as an image of Him which is a loving and caring God. We are NOT God but we are an image of Him. If we aren't showing love towards others and caring for others, how are we an image of Him? We need to start loving our neighbor instead of hurting them. We must support each other instead of bringing them down. We must lift people up and not tear them down. Simple gestures like these can truly change the world.
