Diversity

“He made the entire human race … with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and … actually find him." Acts 17:26 The Message

Gentle reminders of how God has blessed us are there in His word. Time, the opportunity to share in the diversity of life, is there if we Choose to live in the moment. For me it’s not easy but, I’m trying to be present and to listen, really listen to what others say and what I say in return. Remember, just a smile can brighten someone’s day. Take joy in the beauty and variety in God’s creation today.

“The biblical story of creating makes it clear that the great variety in creation is not a matter of some things being better and other things being worse. The repeated refrain is “And God saw that it was good.” The diversity is goodness abundantly expressed”…

“We are free in relationship to each other, discovering an equal acceptance. Other persons are not enemies to fear, not superior beings to envy, not deadbeats to avoid. In Christ every person is or can be experienced in a new way, a person we are free to receive and love without fear of being diminished or intimidated.” Taken From: “The Traveling Light”

Jesus, Loving Spirit,

We are so thankful for your love that knows no boundaries. Help us to see with your eyes of compassion and forbearance. Open our spirits to your presence daily. Keep us from missing the opportunities you put before us. You are truly the joy and surprise in our lives.
Amen
