You are more valuable than they are, aren't you? read more.

Matthew 7:9-12

"There isn't a person among you who would give his son a stone if he asked for bread, is there? Or if he asks for a fish, he wouldn't give him a snake, would he?

Therefore, whatever you want people to do for you, do the same for them, because this summarizes the Law and the Prophets."

A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, and a rotten tree cannot produce good fruit. Every tree that doesn't produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into a fire. So by their fruit you will know them."
