Science can tell us amazing facts about life – what it’s made of, how biological systems work together, and what people are like before birth. For instance . . .
- Your heart will beat more than 3.2 billion times over your lifetime.
- It began beating when you were 3 weeks and 1 day old.
- Before you were born, your heart beat approximately 54 million times!
While science can only speculate on life’s origin, the Bible is definitive:
He is, after all, “the living God.” (1 Timothy 4:10) All life – eternal and physical – is from Him and of Him. We celebrate life in all its forms because it is His gift.
But what’s special about human life? Why do we talk about it as being “sacred”?
