Friendship inherent in creation

Why its logically consistent to understand that we're made, in some fashion, resembling the Creator--
  1. To have friendship with the Creator, who sees the divine goodness reflected back to God through the character of the unique human person;
  2. To allow humans to maintain friendship with one another, because friendship is of its essence a mutual reflection of the good that humans delight in and treasure. Without that reflection even the possibility of friendship is mitigated because humans generally aren't close to perfect.
