Deeply Rooted - Week 5:

Genesis 1:26-27

Have you seen the movie Wonder? If not, you should. Or better yet, read the book. It is about a young boy with facial disfiguration and how he navigates the cruelty and kindness he encounters. One quote from the movie is: “When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” There was even a T-shirt with the words “Choose Kind” that was popular when the movie came out. If we can remember that each and every human being (yes, even our enemies!) bears the image of God himself, it might be a little bit easier to choose kind.
