Human Value

A prevailing message in this world is that human beings are expendable. Yet the fact remains that each human being is of value to someone else, and most fundamentally to God. Because the world has become a global village we are overwhelmed by the vastness of the world, yet the world has become accessible with ease of international travel. Our interests in our families and local community have been sidelined or de-prioritised by  an interest in world news and international affairs. As our interest in the world has grown in proportion to our interest in global domination, marketing and popularity, the individual has grown smaller and may consequently feel less significant.

Human life is of inestimable value regardless of age, gender, religion ethnicity nor any other means by which human beings categorise and rate one another

She chose the subject of her doctoral dissertation as suicide prevention from a biblical perspective. She believes that just as suicide is multifactorial, it may be tackled and treated from different perspectives and using different perspectives. However, those who know their human value to God and others, are less likely to make this fatal decision. We all need to be reminded of how much we matter!
