Can we stop hurting & devaluing human life?

Anyone who devalues any human life has failed to recognize the most valuable thing in the world. If your life matters, then so does all human life in all of its stages.

The greatest failure is the failure to appreciate and respect the value human life. Every failure to value human life is a form of insanity.

The most valuable thing on earth is human life, from its beginning in conception to the last heartbeat. To devalue any stage of human life is to devalue all human life.

Murder is cowardice. For a person to make himself the executioner of a human life is the ultimate arrogance.

Hurt people, hurt other people. Forgive so you don’t remain in pain and spread it around. Memories you allow to stream thru your consciousness can bring great joy or painful torment. Select them wisely.

Inspired people, inspire other people. Open your heart to hope. When you complain about circumstances, you plant pain producing seeds in your heart. Instead ask: “What’s good about my life?”

To forgive is to give yourself the gift of healing from the pain that people have caused you. To hurt someone back is to back yourself into the claws of vengeance.

Hurt can produce hate.
Wounds can produce wisdom.
You get to choose.

People who want
To cause pain
Have let their conscience
Go down the drain.

Pain makers
Are cruel takers,
Running over people
To get what they want.

If you’ve ever pretended
To be mended,
You know that
Faking it
Isn’t really
Making it

Love doesn’t chuck
To applaud,
As people go amuck
And begin to self-destruct

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
