Our Lives Matter

In the immediate aftermath of the death of Robin Williams yesterday, Eugene Cho wrote a tender piece entitled Remember that our lives matter. Remember to be more human – to loved ones, neighbors, and strangers alike. There is so much in our world that dehumanizes us. It’s no wonder there is so much despair. But listen: your life matters. It’s true.

Here’s a portion of Cho’s blog post. We hope it blesses you and empowers you to spread God’s love to those who need it most.

And most importantly, remind yourself that YOU are loved. Not just merely by your loved ones but also by the ONE who created all that is good and beautiful. 

Take a moment. Breathe in and out this truth:
Our lives matter.
Our lives matter to God.
God loves you.

We need reminders.
We need self-reminders.
We need others to regularly remind us.
And when we need help, we need others to remind us – again.
And there’s no shame in asking for help.
No shame in asking for reminders.

Our lives matter.
Our lives matter to God.
God loves you.

This is another wake up call but we don’t have to wait for the next wake up call.
Remember that we matter.
Remember that we matter to God.
Remember that God loves us.
Remember to be more human – to loved ones, co-workers, neighbors, and strangers alike.
