Diversity-not a bad thing!

March 31, 2017

 I have the privilege of working with a lot of different people, every day.  I’ve been told that no two snowflakes are alike.  Likewise, I have found that to be true of people.  How different we really are, one from the other.  Not everyone walks at the same speed.  Not everyone enjoys everything others enjoy.  We are diverse in our very character.  Now, diversity tends to lead to disagreement. 

 

Because others don’t work, act, live and philosophically see things as we do, we often have a problem getting along with them.  However, our diversity is often our strength.  What one person can’t do another can and vice versa.  Our churches are built using teamwork; people working and striving together – one purpose, one goal – to further the kingdom.  As one, we are strong.  Psalms 133:1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”

 

My college president used to say, “Everybody knows something I don’t, therefore, every man is my teacher.”  Diversity in opinion, talent or ability should not divide us, it should strengthen us.  Now, I’m not suggesting being tolerant of things that we know are wrong or, for that matter, to change our convictions.  But, I am suggesting that we see the value of working as one.

 

Over the years we have become a divided people, and many times over issues that shouldn’t divide us.  Our enemies are not without the gates.  The enemy is within.  United we stand; divided we fall.
