Today I am thankful for our differences. Everyone is different. We have big differences, like our nationalities and cultures. Our differences even go all the way to our religious beliefs. We also have smaller differences, like our taste in decorating and color preferences.
With all these differences we have learned to get along. We have even learned form one another. The one think I have learned is that God made us all and loves us all. In John, 13:34 Jesus said "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another."
This is something that I find hard to do at times. I try to get along with everyone, but do I really love everyone? That is something for me to work on. But, I am thankful everyone is different because if everyone was easy to love we wouldn't need this commandment. It's the ones that make it hard to love them, that really need our love the most.
