The Word of God shows us the perfection of God and the best way to live as well as how far short we fall of that perfection. That same Word also reveals the cure for our sin and becomes the way that we grow more like Jesus.
Among everything that God created, people are His most prized possession. When we affirm the value of one another, we align our hearts with the heart of God. Real connection to one another is an indispensable part of showing and receiving that value.
