People are Valuable.
Many of the hot issues in today’s society come down to a misunderstanding of the unique and special image of God on humans.
Genesis 1:27 tells us that God created man and woman in the image of God. This gives humans the highest place in God’s created order. They are the most valuable thing on the planet.
Trees, plants, and animals all have value, but what separates them is that they do not bear the image of God.
If we walked in this truth, how would the following issues change?
1. Sanctity of Life. Abortion and Euthanasia are issues that come from not applying this truth. God values the young and old alike. We are able to express this care for mothers who choose to keep their babies. When the church helps with health care and education costs, they value life.
