The difference between us, is for some, the path leads us to the kingdom of God, while for others this path is only a journey in their lives that is only part of the natural course of life.
Knowing this, and understanding this, should make us all see that our paths cross often. As such, we should take the time to interact with one another, as our common bond is our humanity, our bond is also the desire to make the most of our lives regardless of where our paths lead.
We should take the time to place aside what we perceive as our differences, and instead recognize our similarities. Understand what makes us human, and in our diversities find the common elements that make us all the same.
For the Christian, we should understand that Jesus’ commandment to love one another (John 13:34) must extend to everyone and not only to those who share in the common faith in Christ as savior. We must, as the Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37), look beyond our differences and allow compassion and love lead us to do what is right for each other. May you always look for peace and love with one another, may you always see that we are not really all that different for one another.
