Brothers and Sisters

From Blog09


Hair of black wool or golden flax,
Eating salsa or kimchi or kraut,
Kilt or business suit,
Palace or hut,
Farm or office or factory--
These are lesser things.

Child of God or of Satan,
Reborn or still dead,
Forgiven or guilty,
Pure or polluted,
Serving God or serving self--
These are greater things.

Thank you, Lord, for brothers and sisters
Of every nation and tribe and people.
Thank you for your creativity and for their diversity
And for opening my eyes to see all of this.

And they sang a new song with these words: "You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were killed, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation..."
--Revelation 5:9, NLT
