The Identity Underlying Diversity

How do things like customs and status get in the way of loving others in your family? Church? Work place? Community? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1462).

One of the most liberating things in the world is to see others regardless of differences in externalities as vulnerable human beings in need of compassion and love.  Many corollaries flow from this central insight--human beings share immensely more in common than that which differentiates them; truth is not a respecter of persons and can be sourced in the most unexpected of places, in the most paradoxical of ways, and at the most unusual of times; human experience shares identical themes beneath widely diverse appearances; that "all men are created equal" is one of the most transformative of concepts opening doors to respect, acceptance, and shared abundance.

Likewise, genuine security is not provided by surface constructs but by underlying identity.  Thus, the flimsy nature of constructs make their defense reactionary,  divisive,`desperate, and cruel. God grant that we buy into the real deal and not be mislead by grounding our trust in illusory and insubstantial accretions.
