DAY 13 : DIVERSITY

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

- Galatians 3:28 {ESV}

Do you remember your Sunday School teacher sharing God’s Word on the flannel board?  Do you remember getting a star by your name if you brought your Bible and friend to church?  Do you remember singing this song when you were a kiddo…

“Jesus loves the little children, All the children of the world.  Red and yellow, black and white.  All are precious in His sight.  Jesus loves the little children of the world.”

I think it’s time for parents to pull out the old Sunday School song and teach your kiddos this rich, profound, supernatural and life changing truth.  The truth that God is super creative.  The truth that God has a wild imagination.  The truth that God made people red, yellow, black and white.  The truth that God calls us to live a life that appreciates and values the diversity that God has created.  Today, pray that God would give your kids a supernatural, accepting, encouraging spirit to those that are different from them.
