Being human

Each person is due honor and respect just by virtue of being human. Those you love and don’t love, those who wish you well and those who stand opposed to you, each (including yourself) is worthy of honor, embodying a divine soul made in the image and likeness of God. Because we are only human, we are scarred and marred, bent and bruised, but the blemishes exist only superficially. Looking deeper reveals the glowing radiance of a holy soul. Develop eyes to see the soul, and bow down in honor.

– Alan Morinis (The Mussar Institute)
