Life is valuable. Human life is uniquely valuable.
Even though the modern world focuses on the utility or quality of a life, that’s not a criteria that God values.
His perspective is communicated clearly and with no room for doubt – every human life has intrinsic value. Full stop.
It doesn’t matter how deface, debased or damaged a person emerges or becomes. Every single human life is a representation of the image of God and therefore worthy of respect.
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27 (ESV)
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?[a]
