We say life doesn’t matter if . . .

We say life doesn’t matter . . .

  • If we don’t wear a seat belt.
  • When we neglect our health.
  • If we step in front of a moving car in a parking lot, trusting the distracted stranger behind the wheel not to run over us.
  • When we drive while distracted.
  • When our culture produces murder belts and kill zones.
  • If we like for our entertainment to emphasize violence.
  • When we take unnecessary physical risks.
  • If we attempt to justify suicide.
  • When we call the civilians killed by our bombs collateral damage.
  • If we drive drunk (or let someone else drive drunk).
  • When we shoot to kill.
  • If we drive recklessly.
  • If we incite violence.
  • When we ignore safety protocols.
  • When we ignore people’s pain.
  • If we engage in road rage.
  • If we are careless with drugs and risk an overdose.
  • When we hate a fellow human being.
  • If we bully someone into assaulting us and then claim we killed him in self-defense.
  • When we celebrate the victims of war instead of grieving for them.
  • If we smoke.
  • When people proven to be innocent are kept on death row.
  • When the most innocent of all are killed in the womb.
  • If we ignore a dangerous situation to try to take a selfie.
  • When we see public health measures as a ridiculous nuisance.
  • When we justify and/or ignore the cruelty in our nation’s history.

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!
