THE VALUE OF HUMANITY
THE VALUE OF HUMANITY
There is a TRUTH, a truth irrelevant to ignore. From the beginning, God gave life. Yes, He gave life to humanity and for every wonderfully made creature. Life is as institutionalized by God as the family of progression by man. It is a continuous process consolidated by nature and agreeably unopposed by it. Among all the things created by God and entitled as viable, human being is identified as the highest order in that category. Life is ordained by God. It can also be viewed as a temporary process constituting the beginning, an intermediate stage and an end.
The word VALUE has a coherent attachment to life. The extent to which man plays around with life, treating as a usual is alarming. Like children, we need to understand that God is our Father, the creator of heavens and earth, the installer of life, the cultivator of character, the protector of humanity, the provider and examiner of good. Have you ever wondered why man walks on twos unlike other animals in the universe? Why you do not look like anyone else? Every human is unique in God’s eyes; your heart print (heart beat) is never like anyone’s, your thumb print including your general facial appearance.
Life is a sensitive case sensitive process. It can be equated to a delicate or a brittle glass or pieces of pottery. Once untamed, it precociously withers and disintegrates. LOVE, VALUE, TRUTH and CARE among many other things are considered the four wheels by which LIFE rolls on. 1 Samuel 26:24 as surely as I VALUED your life today, so may the LORD value my life and deliver me from all trouble. Because life is the most precious thing created by God, He expects us to value it. God gets annoyed when we act like we know everything. Especially, to use other people as mere instruments.
To use others as means to the end provokes anger in God’s glory. The consequences are solely determined by the underlying promises God has made. The Value for life calls for Love, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Self-control, and charity. God is pleased to see human beings fellowship together, care for one another and tell each other about the mountains of promises he has for us.
No man has the mandate to impeach another man’s life. Not to think about it. Gossip, theft and violence are the stumbling blocks to eternity. Ezekiel 7:11 Violence has grown into a rod to push wickedness; none of the people will be left, none of that crowed–no wealth, nothing of value.
