Kidnapping is a subject frequently addressed in movies. There’s usually a ransom note with the demand for a large amount of money. The family of the victim is more than willing to pay whatever it takes to get their loved one back. The amount demanded prompts the question, how much is life worth?
Some religious and philosopher types believe human life isn’t worth much and some argue about when life begins, believing life isn’t worth protecting until birth. Some equate humans with animals, believing we are all equal. So what is the value of human life?
God the Father has such a high view of human life he sent his son as the ransom for the whole world. He was willing to pay the ultimate price for us. He values and loves us so much the one who was God, was with God and created everything (John 1) gave us his own invaluable life to give us life with him. Praise God he values us as much as he does his Son!
