Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Genesis 9:5

“And I will require the blood of anyone who takes another person’s life. If a wild animal kills a person, it must die. And anyone who murders a fellow human must die. – Genesis 9:5 (NLT)

Today’s Verse is a little intense. It talks about how if an animal or a person kills another person that they must die. And while that is really intense, it’s powerful in another sense because it shows how much God loves people.

People are so important to God. He loves them deeply and the whole Bible shows the depth of God’s love for people.

Today’s Truth: People are important to God.

It can be easy to look at someone who looks or acts differently than you and think they’re not important. The truth is, regardless of how people look or act, to God they’re important.

That means that we should be treating others with love and respect. Not because we always agree with them or even like them, but because they’re important to God.

So today, if you’ve been guilty of treating someone unfairly, make any adjustments in your heart that you need to make. Realize that regardless of how people look or act, they were made by our creator God and they have extreme value to Him. Because of that, we should love them and treat them with respect.
