If human life is created by God, in His own likeness, it must be highly valued. Since God is the author of life, it is His prerogative to decide the beginning and the ending of it. We accept His standard as our own and protect the precious lives He has placed in our care.
The Christian believes that the Author of Life has control of life—from the cradle to the grave. We honor His views, we value children, and we look to Him to give meaning to every life He has created.
Life is an aging process and for those who reach old age there are special challenges and blessings. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, describes life and old age well in the book of Ecclesiastes.
Life brings life questions. How would the Creator of Life have His children to think about…. euthanasia? safety procedures? animal rights? handicapped folk? contraceptives? abortion? Listen and be challenged to share God’s view of every life that has been created in His image.
The corona virus pandemic is forcing everyone to evaluate the cost of protecting life. We are asking hard questions, and the answers must be based on the principles from God's Word. These scriptural principles will guide the younger, and teach them to honor the elderly among us.
