23 May Genesis 9:6

“Whoever sheds man’s blood,
By man his blood shall be shed,
For in the image of God
He made man.”

Here, we see the importance again of human life. God views the taking one another’s life as a capital offense. As stated in the Old Testament, if one shed another’s blood, then their blood shall also be shed. This is reinforced multiple times in scripture. How does this passage make you feel? What are some of the ways we can refuse to “let God be God” in our lives?
