There is an intrinsic worth and value placed by God on every human being – saved or lost, young or old, rich or poor, whatever ethnic background. This causes us to strive to treat one another with respect and honor.

“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” (John 3:16 AMP)
