Reflecting on the words from Dane Anthony, use the image above as a visual to delve into the ways we see ourselves as creations of God.
- Find a place to center yourself - a place that is comfortable. Take a deep breath.
- Focus on the small circle. Think about ways we diminish ourselves as less than a creation of God. Think about ways other people tell us that we are less than. How does that make us feel? What are our reactions (physical, emotion, spiritual, etc.)?
- Focus on the large circle. Think of the ways we elevate ourselves to the point of pride and self-interest. Think about how other people do this in all its various forms. Why do we elevate ourselves over others? How does this make us feel?
- Focus on the arrow and the road. How do we find a balance? How do we look at ourselves and say we are no less than our created selves and no more than the wonders of God?
