What is the value of life?
How far will we go to desecrate God's gift of life?
Living now in the wake of a most unusual Lent and Easter and living in confidence that Christ is risen, this is worth our consideration. We see the value God has placed upon life by the giving of His one and only Son to suffer and die that we might live. We are reminded that the lingering effect of the fall in Eden is the temptation to make life cheap. But God's redeeming work is to give it eternal value. What a schizophrenic point of view -- to work so hard to preserve some lives and then to decide that others lives can be ended at will? Makes you wonder about those who insist that everything must be done to prevent the spread of the corona virus and protect the people while insisting that abortion clinics are essential and the lives taken there a more important value than allowing people to worship!
Lord, have mercy.
