Infinite Worth

The world says that we can know nothing ultimately. That there is no creator and we evolved from whatever the current popular idea is. They bend over backwards to claim life has no real meaning while simultaneously doing everything they can to sustain their own lives even at the expense of others. The severely unhinged among them claim human lives are expendable, meaningless and have no real value. These humanistic ideals are diametrically opposed to the Christian worldview.

Titus 1:15-16 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Our Christian worldview gives us ample evidence that we are created in the image of God therefore have infinite worth. Every human being is worthy of protection from life to natural death. We see several mandates throughout the scriptures. One such talks about the most vulnerable among Us. Who will step up to protect these image bears? I will. You should. We should.

James 1:27  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

This lends itself to the command to love our neighbors as ourselves. The Bible is clear that our mortal flesh is weak and in need of protection in this world. The strong among us have a duty to protect the weak. The learned person has a duty to teach the common man. We all possess strengths that can be of service to our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is up to each one of us to look at where our strengths lie and seek to serve others with them.

Matthew 6:20  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Matthew Henry comments on this verse: Here is a good reason given why we should not look upon anything on earth as our treasure, because it is liable to loss and decay:

Even though we are called to serve people here and now on this Earth, the things we do and say here have heavenly consequences. Glorifying God in all that we do is our chief end. Those heavenly treasures though not seen in this life will last for eternity.
