75: Tribes: One Family Under God

The world approaches the concept of diversity and views it as a separator – a factor that brings division and often leads to misunderstanding, conflict and avoidable tension.

In keeping with Nigeria’s Independence Day, bearing in mind her cultural diversity, we will look at how God views diversity and how we as Christians should view and respond to diversity, in our marriages and relationships, within and without.

The world’s view of diversity tends to create bias in the minds of the interacting parties, many times hindering the flow of conversations and transactions, but with God it is totally different – He blesses and loves diversity. As children of God and citizens of His kingdom, we are part of God’s family, a large family rich in diverse language, culture and mannerisms.
