Are You Not of More Value

of-more-value-than-theyLook at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:26).

Years ago I worked for a computer assembly company. Most of my fellow employees respected the fact that I was a pastor and they controlled their language when I was around. One man played it different. He made a habit of saying every nasty comment, filthy word, and ridiculing jibe he could think of when he saw me.

One day on lunch break he noticed that I was eating a hard boiled egg.

You Christians are such hypocrites,” he said in front of everyone. “You’re against aborting babies yet you’ll eat the unborn baby of a chicken.

The guy wasn’t up on his farming or his biology. He was ignorant of the scientific difference between a fertilized and unfertilized chicken egg. He also didn’t know anything about the differences between a chicken and a human. He believed the evolutionary theory that animals and people are equals.

The Bible tells us that God created Man special, in His own likeness and image (Genesis 1:26). Of all the living creatures of earth, only into Man did God breathe and give life (Genesis 2:7). Of all the works of His hand, only for Man did God give His Son as a sacrifice for sin (John 3:16).

God Himself established the value of human life – born and unborn.
