Man is created in the form of Hashem

 

"Hashem created man in His image, in the image of Hashem He created him." (Bereishis 1:27)
Whether a person is tall or short, heavy or thin, crippled or whole, he is still in Hashem's image. This is also true of the Middos that a person is given. The middos of a person are like the Middos of Hashem, and should be used in a holy way. (Rav Chaim Vital, Sharei Kedushah) Since we are all created in the image of Hashem, we must honor each other.
