Here in the United States, there have been a lot of sayings going around regarding the value of one's life, sayings like "Black lives matter," and "Blue lives matter" (referring to police officers who usually dress in blue uniforms). The missing word in these sayings is the word too or also. What these sayings imply is that black lives matter also and blue lives matter also.
The truth is that EVERY LIFE MATTERS, including YOURS!
Unfortunately, the value of life has been diminished by Darwin's theory of evoluton, which, by the way, is only a theory. In fact, the more and more we learn about science, the less and less does the theory of evolution hold water. The reason is that it is simply not true.
The truth is that you were created by God Who loves you and Who created you for a speciic purpose. The fact that God created you gives you value, and the fact that God created you with a specific purpose gives meaning to your life.
But how can you know what your purpose is? There is only one way: by accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. Why? Because your purpose is all wrapped up in Jesus. Until you discover Jesus, you will never discover your purpose.
So, when you wonder if your life matters, be assured that it does. And it matters greatly! God has placed you on this earth at this particular time in history because your purpose is directly related to His plan for this particular time in history.
Ask God to show you His purpose for your life. He will. As you fulfill your purpose, you will experience great joy and you will benefit humanity at the same time.
NOTE: For a great book on discovering your life purpose, read THE SEARCH FOR SIGNIFICANCE by Robert McGee. This book is available through my Amazon Affiliate Link.
