The Bible says :
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Genesis 1:27-28 KJV
The precious gift that only God can give.
We who have it value it. We’ll do anything to preserve it. We’ll spend all we have to save our life.
We will stop at nothing to extend that life. From diets to workouts, we want all the life we can squeeze out of this body the Lord has given us.
And yet ,and this upsets me to extreme here, we’ve become a barbaric society with little value given to the life of others.
From robbing The Womb, to euthanasia , the despicable trashing of human life because it just isn’t worth enough to try and preserve it.
All of our medical prowess we have acquired , all the knowledge , the research . All the money given and spent to prolong the most precious gift we have…. Life.
I read where at a sporting event just this past weekend where a fan, a fan mind you, tumbled 400ft to his death, during the game…. A game!!! And to no ones surprise, there wasn’t so much as a break taken in the game. Experts all working frantically explaining the sick reason why they didn’t stop the game; would not even respect a human life to see if he would at least be ok!
Wonder if someone could have prayed? Couldn’t somebody take the time to lift that soul up to God in prayer?
It s exposed what has become the way things are in America. You would expect such behavior out of a 3rd world country. From the likes of Iraq or Iran, or somewhere in Russia, but here in the heart of the USA?
It reveals how little value our society now places on a human life.
It’s a sick world that we live in.
But thank God that’s not the way God views the sanctity of life.
The Bible says:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
Yes, I’ll take Gods view any day. Thank God He hasn’t changed his mind on the worth of a human soul.
