“After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands.”
Revelation 7:9-10 HCSB
US law requires employers to provide training on diversity to their employees. One quickly learns many things that are not appropriate to say or to talk about in the workplace and about being sensitive to differences in how people look at things. While this is a relatively new requirement, the concept of diversity goes back to the creation of the world. God Himself is the author of diversity! Heaven will be a glorious place with people from all over the world, from lives and lands very different from our own, all unified by a shared salvation in Jesus Christ. He unifies people with a common purpose of worshipping and glorifying our Lord.
When we see others, no matter their background or culture, as people God thinks enough of to send His Son to die for them, we quickly find we have more in common than we ever thought possible.🚦
