Our rights come from the reality that we are all created, and that makes us equal. Each person is beautifully and wonderfully made by the same magnificent artist. Our equality is based on our common origin, not our common assets or abilities.
Because we are all equal, we all have value. Each and every person on this planet, despite their family tree, melanin content, or bank account balances, have amazing worth. Their behaviors and attitudes are not necessarily valuable, but the people who have them are, and it is critical we make that distinction. Every person’s life is a matter of great importance to the one who made us.
Take Away: We are all created, and that is what makes us equal.
