Looking upon a mountain meadow and seeing all the splashes of colour during the Spring and Summer with all the different flowers. Part of the beauty we see is the diversity. God not only made so many different kinds of flowers, but so many different colours. What if all the flowers that God made were just one colour, say white. Everywhere we went they were all the same colour…whether a rose, a tulip, a dandelion, a poppy, etc. Would they still be as popular today as they are now? Would we appreciate the gift of a flower bouquet? Would people even want them in their gardens…maybe a few of them to go with their white house surrounded by a white picket fence.
So now look at Gods’ creation of us. How boring it would be if we were all the same. Our diversity makes us beautiful. God created us in his own image. How can the colour of our skin make a person less significant than another? We are all Gods’ children! Our different languages, cultural differences and people, make our world interesting. How would you like to go on a holiday that you put all your savings into, “a once in a lifetime trip”, and go to a place where the people were exactly the same as you? Their culture, their language, their colour and they had the same white flowers growing in front of their white house.
The tension of racial differences has been stirred up by the god of this earth. (Satan) He prefers us to be at each others throat and warring over cultural differences. Hate breeds’ sin and Satan is wallowing in it on this earth. The more time we focus on our sinful differences of this world, the less time we have to spend with our Creator. Allow our diversities to be truly special as God created them. Love one another…we are brothers and sisters. Enjoy the beauty of Gods’ creation with all its colours.
“Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.”
Acts Chapter 17
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
