Diversity is a Sign of Fullness

      Many Christians fear diversity. We all love unity, but we tend toward uniformity. This tendency is most clearly seen in denominationalism. But it exists vibrantly outside of denominational lines as well.

      Diversity, however, is part of the nature of the Body of Christ. It’s also woven into this universe. Look at creation. Look at your physical body. Look at the unseen Trinity who brought both into existence. What do you find? Particularity with unity. Diversity with harmony.

      Point: Diversity is a sign of fullness. Therefore, diversity should be embraced and not feared or rejected.

      Yet few things so test the human heart as much as diversity.
