Food for thought...

Ever wondered where our worth as humans comes from? Or even what is our worth? Are we of more value to God than animals? Some say we are no different than any other animal on earth...we're just more "developed" (another term for this is EVOLVED). Really? What does this say about the dignity of human worth, as well as to our Creator? Wow... Here's a good quote from R.C. Sproul:

“Man’s dignity rests in God who assigns an inestimable worth to every person. Man’s origin is not an accident, but a profoundly intelligent act by One who has eternal value; by One who stamps His own image on each person. God creates men and moves heaven and earth to redeem them when they fall. Our origin is in creation and our destiny is for redemption. Between these points every human heartbeat has value.”
(R.C. Sproul, In Search of Dignity, p. 94).
