Life Experience

Memories of another time

Malachi 2:10 Don’t we all come from one Father? Aren’t we all created by the same God? So why can’t we get along? Why do we desecrate the covenant of our ancestors that binds us together?

Today in the City I watched as fans from two AFL teams made their way to the MCG, in mixed groups. It made me think of times in Scotland where fans would go to football stadiums by different routes, meet in different places to avoid encountering opposing fans and avoid violence. Or how others would intentionally position themselves along routes taken by opposing fans to create violent confrontation.

Much of this violence in the name of religious belief.

The verse above states the obvious. We are all created equal, by the same creator. Yet we allow life’s differences to cause separation rather than allowing His love to unite us.

My prayer today is regardless of religious, social or any other differences we might have that we will all ‘get along’ because that is what God expects us to do.
