We Are All the Same

Working in skilled care, we have a variety of people and personalities. Some came from the poorest of situations and little education, while others are well educated and have considerable money.

However, we treat everyone the same, regardless of their background, riches or education.

I remind my residents on a regular basis we are all part of the family of God and should love one another and treat one another this way.

Understandably those with more money expect preferential treatment and strive to be the center of attention, sometimes making a scene when they don’t get their way. But, my staff and I hold steadfast in order to maintain order and downplay a scene.

My thoughts moved to the kingdom of heaven and how the Lord loves and disciplines us all the same. He does not play favorites or pick on us, but gave each of us our own task to complete as well as making us all unique in His image.

Jesus tells us “Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.”  {John 13:16}

One person is no more important than another.  We live in a world where people are me based instead of other based, but the Lord reminds us no matter how me based we are, the person next to us is no greater and no less than we are.

May we all remember this when our heads and pride decide to swell up within us and get the best of ourselves.
