I thought I would have no time to write until the say after Christmas, but I have found some time all alone in the night as the house is quietly sleeping, and as always my brain is moving. So I write, as I am pushed to do by an internal unconditional encourager. And here is where my eclectic thoughts have taken me this evening… on divisions.
Having lived all over the world and travelled extensively whole being a social observer and participant, a learned doctor and a writer, I am qualified to say the following with authority… God made every single person in existence and we all have the same desire to be close to Him and be loved and joyful and peaceful. Often external things/distractions/wrongs serve to interfere in our life goal because God has an enemy (that willingly chose that horrible position) that wants us divided and eventually dead. I do not see color of skin. I do not see language barriers. I do not see religious barriers. I do not see monetary differentiations. I do not see power differences. I do not idolize anyone at all. Here me out, for here is the crux of the matter. Every person is made on purpose with love by God, who left fingerprints all over them. Every person has a shade of His glory and a desire to love their loving Creator God back. They often miss how to do this in the most effective way He wrote for us in thr Bible. But every person matters. A lot. As much as any other person on earth, no more or less. If we remember this, we see our common ground. When we have common ground, we are friends and family. Division becomes the foreign devil. Seperation becomes ridiculous, like a strange dream you are glad to have awaken from. And Christmas becomes a unifying event to celebrate our common heritage together. And that is distinctively beautiful. And perfect, most natural. ❤
