July 15: Significance of Life

Read Genesis 1:26; Psalm 139:14-16

Life

Playing the game of Life is a lot of fun! I pick my course and control many decisions to make my life better and add to the value of my final destination. Those that play with me are seen as “in the way” or obstacles to my goal.

This is a game, but we may use the same approach in our own lives. Do we see others that same way that God sees them? Every season of each life matters! Our assessment of the productivity and value of life, if different from God’s view, can kill or diminish the view I should have of life.

Genesis 1:26 reminds us that each person is created in the image of the Creator. He has intentionally and purposefully created each one. Let’s take a look at how He views us.

Precious

Loved

Valued

Psalm 139:14 is an important statement about our value to Him. We are fearfully and wonderfully made! The actual word “fear” used here means “awesome” and “revered!” Worshiping the Creator is a great response to life is to this amazing reality. We need to respond as David did! “Thank you God, you made me fearfully and wonderfully! What you made is awesome!” Verses 15-16 allow us to see what was happening as we were formed. Our Creator, was weaving and planning for each of us! He was giving you and me all of our features! He was planning the days of our lives.

He is part of each moment and breath of our existence! We have a moment-by-moment choice to respond as He views our life or as we view it. Don’t try to roll the dice and be in charge. See how He values you and then in turn value others the same!

Choose to worship and follow His path to see your life as precious, loved and valued!
