Romans 12

Practical Messages for Impractical Times

We often think of ourselves as embracing diversity based on obvious characteristics; ethnicity, religious beliefs, culture, etc. However, are you really able to love those who express different opinions or subscribe to alternate morals or value systems? What about the individuals whose life experience surpasses your own? All of these scenarios invite the opportunity for conflict due to the opposition to our own beliefs.

Romans 12: 9-21 presents God’s instructions for embracing diversity. “Don’t just pretend to love others…”

Dear God, I am guilty of pretense. I have not embraced diversity according to your standards. I confess my sins and ask forgiveness. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
