We Are All God’s Children

It must be a lesson God wants to infuse into my deepest places.

Once again lying in contemplation on God I was presented with the diversity of humans. Yet along with observing the distinct individuality of each, there was the overwhelming feeling of how we are all brothers and sisters—in the family with God the Father.

Yet we persist in divisiveness. Others are sinners; we are not. Some have sin worse than ours, so that we may justify ourselves in our own eyes.

But what about God’s eyes? From a different perspective one sees easily that all are at the same time people who miss the mark (sinners) and people who are loved by God.

Can you live within the paradox that at the very same time you are both someone falling short of God yet someone God loves? And the same with every neighbor?
