United In Our Diversity

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 (NIV)

Today I watched a video that someone had forwarded to me via social media, and it warmed my soul. The song played in the background was a song by a famous Brazilian singer, Roberto Carlos, whose words spoke of things that he wished he could do (basically, speaking of impossible, wishful things) and the video was a collage of photos of animals spending time together, snuggling one another.

The interesting detail about this photo collage was the fact that the animals were not animals of the same kind. There were baby birds being cuddled by cats, zebras being hugged by elephants, puppies being snuggled by horses, and so on. The vast collection of photos displayed great diversity and unity intertwined in each shot. Those animals, however big or small, did not look at one another’s size, color, shape or communication sound; they simply displayed their loved for them.

As I looked at each photo, I smiled and thought to myself, “Wow, what if we, humans, could be kind and loving towards others as these animals, by loving unconditionally, in spite of one another’s differences?”

The scenes in the video I mentioned were scenes that we often only enjoy in the pages of a book, in stories written by authors who wished for those things when they penned the stories for their reading audiences. Stories of love, peace and unity!

The great Author of Life, the Sovereign Lord, had similar wishes for His creation. When God created humanity, He hoped that there would be unity amidst the diversity that He had created. I believe the best way for us to show God that what He created is worth the praises of a best seller, is to live our lives practicing love and kindness towards our fellow man.

“Dear Lord, thank You for creating us and for modeling love to us. Because You love us, we, too, can love others.”


For His Glory
