STRENGTH IN DIVERSITY

Have you ever asked yourself why God created people to be different? Why is the human body designed with body parts that are so different from each other?

The truth is that there is some kind of supernatural strength in diversity. The eye may be more sensitive to damage than the finger, but it also heals much faster than your fingers. Within a few milliseconds, a scratch on your eye starts to heal! While it may seem that one organ is stronger than the other, each is unique and important in its own way.

If you take the example of a family, you also realize that everyone may be related but each individual has their own unique character, strengths, and gifts. At first glance, it may appear that some people have an upper hand over others and are bringing more to the table, but it would be foolish to believe so.

Believing that one part of the body is better/stronger than another, or that one member of the family is more important than another, simply means that God didn’t do a good job and made mistakes. This is not true or even possible.

Racism, tribalism, nationalism – All kinds of attempts to segregate and discriminate are wrong. If people stick to their groups and refuse to engage with others purely because of differences and perceived weaknesses, society as a whole will suffer.

Beauty and Strength in Diversity
Where one is weak, another is strong. Where we are all weak, God is ever strong!

In God’s system, where one is weak, another is strong. Where one is strong, another may be weak. Believing that you are better than others will lead to development of a group of people who all share the same strengths, but unfortunately, also suffer the same weaknesses!

How will they help each other overcome challenges? Either they won’t need each other’s help (since they are all strong in the same areas), or they will be totally useless to each other (since they are all weak in the same areas).

God is way more intelligent than we all are. Love and accept others who are created different!

 

Shalom.

 

Do you want to have a personal relationship with Christ? Then you must believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. Repent of your sins and ask Him to come into your heart. Only Christ can reconcile you to your heavenly Father. Say this prayer:

Lord Jesus, I accept that you are the Son of God and you died on the cross for my sins. I repent of all my sins and I ask for your forgiveness. Right now I make you my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for shedding your blood for me at the cross. Amen.

You have now become a child of God. Take the time to read your bible and find a church that teaches the word of God. Let the Holy Spirit work in you to help you become the person God created you to be. God bless you!
