How to revalue devalued human life

Scads of shootings in America are shouting out that human life has been devalued. It’s time to re-value human life. Our lives matter! Here are some practical ways to do that:

  • Treat your own life with respect by overcoming self-destructive thoughts and behaviors.
  • Act like your life matters by taking care of your physical and mental health.
  • Avoid watching, reading, or listening to anything that devalues or insults any human life.
  • Focus your attention on the good that people do, not on the bad things they do.
  • Volunteer. Be proactive in serving others.
  • Realize that anger, hostility, and/or hate cause you and others to devalue human life.
  • Acknowledge that the most innocent form of human life shouldn’t be regarded as disposable.
  • Openly renounce the concept of devaluing people because of their skin color.
  • Refuse to devalue people because you disagree with or disapprove of their beliefs and/or behaviors.
  • Frequently connect heart-to-heart with people who think and see things differently than you do.
  • Be kind and respectful to everyone.
  • Treat every member of the human race as a vital part of humanity–the most valuable thing on planet earth.
  • Avoid being careless with your life and other people’s lives. Pay attention to safety for yourself and others.

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!
