“So God created man in his own image…”
I went to brunch on Sunday with my son and his wife and their four-month-old baby girl; my first grandchild. My son held her in his arms as he ate. As I watched her, I thought of the children in the world who are born into war-torn areas or poverty or homes where they are unwanted or abused. I thought too, about God’s color palette. As the old song goes, “Red, yellow, black, and white, all are precious in His sight”
My granddaughter’s life is no more important or precious than any other child’s life. Every child is a gift from God. God’s palette contains all of our wonderful colors that He loves equally. Let us not forget that. Let’s do our best to set aside our fears and judgments about each other and instead, turn toward each other in the knowledge that we all belong to God. We are all His precious children. Let’s take good care of His things, shall we? Let’s take good care of each other.
