ACT NOW: #Your Life Matters

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, there’s an overwhelming sense that African-American life is not valued.

But, it does matter. It matters to, it matters to your loved ones, and it matters to generations to come. According to Psalm 139, we are all already loved just the way we are. In verse 14, the psalmist cries out “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” When God created us, He made us exactly the way He planned. When He designed us, before we were even in our mother’s womb, He planned our size, the color of our eyes, and the color of our skin, everything about us!

That makes us a worthy special creation! That means NO ONE has the right to say you are less!

Scripture says the following about our young men:

Let all our young men know: YOUR LIFE MATTERS!
