What Is the “Sanctity of Life”?

For You From The Word

 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. (Jeremiah 1:5, NIV)

For You To Think About

unborn babyThe “sanctity of life” is a principle familiar in religion and law.

In each case, the term puts forth that human life is sacred. It is of such value that it is not to be violated.

The English word “sanctity” has its roots in Latin “sanctus,” which literally means “holy.”

In the Bible, the term indicates being “set apart.” God indicates that human life is consecrated and hallowed before birth.

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
Allow all people of the world to respect the sanctity of human life. Move hearts and minds to respect and honor this gift as set apart by You.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
