There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. (C. S. Lewis, British apologist and author)

We often view people on a personal scale of value or achievement. To us, there may be many extraordinary people—athletes, artists, scholars, etc. But, in Lewis’ view, everyone is extraordinary. Why? Because all people have been created in the image of God and have eternal souls. If that’s true, it ought to affect the way we see ourselves and everyone else.

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:27).
