In science class, you’ve probably heard a lot about evolution. You’ve heard the idea that over time, the human race evolved into what we see today. The trouble with the theory of evolution is that not only does it contradict the Bible, but it also removes the value that God placed on people.
When God made humans, he made them in his image. That is different than how He said He made the rest of the plants and animals. What that means is that people aren’t just another animal that evolved to be more complex. Rather, we were created and created with value.
That’s why we instinctively know it’s wrong to kill another human. Because we aren’t just animals. Humans were made in the image of God.
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27 (NLT)
Today, challenge yourself to believe that you were created. As God says, you were made in His image. That means you’re special, and you have a purpose. Don’t let yourself be lied to and told you’re less than God’s best. God made you with value. Choose today to see that value in yourself and in others and live today on purpose knowing you have value.
