Original Sin

We are born with the propensity to make ourselves into the image of God when, in truth, we are already the image of God.  The motto-making, goal-seeking free will of ours works tirelessly to make ourselves into who we think we should be.  To make ourselves more than we already are.

Perhaps this was God’s idea all along.  Perhaps God intends for us to be motto-makers and goal-seekers.  God, who knows the futility in our efforts, hopes that when we find we are unable to achieve the ultimate, we will turn and ask for help.
