To be honest, I struggle with this. As a successful blogger and business person, I find myself feeling or acting like I'm more valuable than others.
But I'm not.
Every human life is worth exactly the same. And any action or behavior or statement that leads anyone to believe otherwise, is wrong.
Culture encourages us to discuss other people's faults. To tear each other down based on looks or the mistakes of our past.
But are we not human? Have we not failed as well? Is determining someone's worth not more than the clothes they wear or the scars on their life? It reminds me of a statement I've read in the Bible, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
This video is a profound reminder of how much depth we miss when we judge those around us. Will you join me in reconsidering a stranger's value and, possibly, even count them above yourself?
Do you struggle with this? How will this change the way you think about people? Let me know in the comments below.
