The Value of Life – 20 July 2007
Have you noticed how many people regard something that they pay
for, or that is expensive, as being more valuable than something
comparable that is given to them free of charge?
I remember a conversation I had with a woman who told me that she
believed that animals should never be given away free of charge, because
they would not be appreciated as much as those they had paid something
This thinking is probably one of the reasons that so many horrible
puppy mills stay in business. Instead of adopting homeless animals, some
people choose to spend a lot of money on a special breed or “that doggie
in the window.” What they should do is check to see if an animal
companion of that breed is in a shelter waiting to be adopted. The
result would be a “win/win” situation.
Using animals to boost one’s ego only reveals a person’s character
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
