The moment humans value things, however intelligent, over people, they embark on the road to ruin. (Jonathan Sacks, British rabbi)
What are the “things” we might value more than people? Surely not the passing, temporal stuff we play with, collect, or store away for the future. Maybe we value intelligence and learning over people. But it’s the learner, not the teaching that’s important. Remember to love people and use things rather than love things and use people.
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them (Genesis 1:27).
