Daily Thoughts - Core Values: People

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)

People are made in the image of God and have an intrinsic value in themselves. No one has any higher value than another.

Stressing our differences can sometimes lead to hostility and division. Recognition of what makes us the same can be the base for flourishing relationships. The Creator establishes that as you are human you have the image of the One who created. This is a good reason to value life. It is knowing this that brings peace not only in valuing each other, but also seeing that Someone far greater than us considered us creatures worth creating.

For His Name’s Sake
