Genesis 2:7

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Man is unique in all of God’s creation for he holds the breath of God in his being. We are created with such wonder that our inclination is to worship a spouse, a child, a leader, or another human that inspires us. Yet our misguided attention to others is rooted in the recognition of something divine. We are filled with God’s breath. Every human being is a reminder of the Image of God, and our awe needs to go beyond the created order to the Creator.
