It's been said we're created in the image of God.
Since none of us are omnipotent or omniscient, "image" needs understanding.
Let's consider that, having been created by God, we have the potential to manifest divine qualities—virtues—the Names of God.
In a world gone blind with materialism, it's a challenge to see how much True Power this Relationship to God can create...
"The companions of God," Bahá'u'lláh Himself has declared, "are, in this day, the lump that must leaven the peoples of the world. They must show forth such trustworthiness, such truthfulness and perseverance, such deeds and character that all mankind may profit by their example." "I swear by Him Who is the Most Great Ocean!" He again affirms, "Within the very breath of such souls as are pure and sanctified far-reaching potentialities are hidden. So great are these potentialities that they exercise their influence upon all created things."
