The Value of Life

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are. – 1 Corinthians 1:27-28 NKJV. 

John Haggai wrote the book “Lead On! Leadership That Endures in a Changing World.” Before Haggai began to train evangelists, he was the pastor of several mega churches in the United States. He developed the Haggai Institute for Advanced Leadership and trained thousands of evangelists to reach the unreached areas of the world. He often spoke of “Attempting something so great for God that it is doomed for failure if God is not in it.” One of his teachings was that each of us is a missionary in our own right and in the place where God has placed us.” He passed away in 2020 at the age of 96. 

John Haggai’s son, Johnny, was born with severe physical handicaps. Johnny was unable to care for most of his physical needs and could only communicate with “yes” and “no.” He lived for just 24 years. Yet, Johnny’s mind was active and intelligent. Over the years of hearing his father speak about those in the undeveloped countries Johnny developed a deep spiritual burden for them. Johnny gave hours of time to prayer for world evangelism and to his father’s ministry with evangelists. The world would call Johnny’s life a mistake. Only in Heaven will we know the full extent of the victories won through the years of Johnny’s faithful prayer. 

With a womb cam it is possible to see a baby inside of the womb only 25 days from conception. You can clearly see the head, eyes, body and it is clear that it is a tiny baby. What this tiny baby will grow to become only God knows. In our human wisdom we would say that some lives are not worth living. But are we really in a position to judge and decide the worth of a life?
