:Every human being wants to be treated with dignity and worth. When we aren't respected, we suffer. Though it can be taken to a sinful extreme, this desire for respect isn't wrong. In fact, it reflects a deep-down awareness that we are made in the image of God. We ought to be treated with honor and compassion-and, even more importantly, we ought to treat others the same way. Dr. Sproul's reflections on dignity, image bearing, and respect get to the heart of our search for personal worth. What would it mean for us to truly love and honor one another, forsaking apathy, prejudice, and even hatred? By shedding light on the many obstacles to dignity-in the home, school, hospital, prison, church, and workplace-Sproul points us to new ways of loving and serving one another. As we value one another in these key fronts, the whole of human dignity is elevated.
