time to grow up

Tuesday April 22nd, Acts. 10: Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.  When the spirit came, Peter started to get "it."  The "It" he got was that God does not show favoritism any more than you show favoritism to your own children.  They are each different, they each have unique needs and talents and wants and foibles, and you love each and every one.  Some parents may wish they would grow up and do this, others you wish would grow up and do that, but in the end you love them and recognize they are each on a path to becoming what they are called to be.  So too God loves all humanity, the creation God formed, breathed life and spirit into and called Good.  God did not just do this for part of humanity, not just for the ones that look like this or that or the ones who express their love for God this way or that way, but humanity, all of humanity.  When we recognize that and we find ourselves on the path to reconciliation, we find ourselves on the path to truly discovering the love of God in our hearts.
