Everyday we brush quickly through the obituary section, whether it’s in the newspaper or online.
Maybe it’s because none of the names or faces have any relation or meaning to us. But to God and their loved ones, the passing of these people weighs very heavily.
Although not everyone will be famous or make a loud visible impact on society, everyone’s life is valued and significant.
To us it may just be another dead person in the obituary notice, but to someone else, it could be a:
- Mother who carried them for 9 months
- Father who sacrificed his dreams to give his children a better life
- Friend who nurtured and cared for them when no one else could
To us it may just be another death, but to Christ it is another precious soul He died for! Every individual is worth the high price paid for by the blood of Jesus.
Let’s value every life like our own. Only then will we live truly fulfilled lives!
