our reason to be here

I am on vacation this week, and for some lighter vacation reading I picked up Willie Nelson’s newest book, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road. I am a huge Willie fan and I am thoroughly enjoying the book. Here is Willie’s views on God:

If we are children of God, then we must be gods too. Very small children must be God also. We were made in His image, duh. Why don’t we know it and act like it? I don’t know, maybe we do know and are afraid to accept the responsibility. If we admit that we are children of God, we can go a long way toward fixing what’s wrong. Maybe that is our reason to be here, end of story.

Don’t know about you, but that sounds good to me. Maybe it’s time more of us accept that we are created in God’s image and begin figuring out how to begin fixing what’s wrong.
