Daily Thoughts - Core Values: Diversity

Each of you has been blessed with one of God's many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well. (1 Peter 4:10)

People have different abilities, roles and functions and we need to help each other to discover those individual abilities.

Creation is enriched with such variety – see the different climates, scenery, landscape and animals – it is no surprise that humans also come with a wide range of abilities. The tragedy is when life’s challenges inside and outside threaten to disrupt the opportunity for us to benefit from the individual’s gift. That which is within the individual – created in the image of God – is so valuable it is worth investing in ways to discover it and celebrate its use for the common good.

For His Name’s Sake
