PU 007: Made in the Image of God

The poor are image-bearers of God, but well-meaning Christians sometimes send a different message.

Scripture tells us that God made all people, rich and poor (Prov. 22:2). We also know from Scripture that all people were created in God’s image (Gen. 1:26, 27). More than a nice idea, this truth should impact our interactions with the poor. By virtue of being image-bearers of God, the poor are:

  • innately valuable
  • creative
  • relational
  • capable of loving
  • capable of responsibility for themselves
  • charged with dominion

Christians are responsible for communicating these truths to the poor. This episode explores how we do—and don’t—fulfill this responsibility.
