“Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man.” (Genesis 9:6). In every culture, murder is wrong; this law seems to be written on our hearts. This verse explains the reason murder is wrong; it is because we are made in God’s image. To shed a man’s blood unlawfully is not only murder; it also shows disrespect for God Himself. Jesus taught that even to call someone a contemptuous name was an extreme sin (Matthew 5:22). Every person we will ever meet is someone for whom Jesus died to save.
