Advent Day Fourteen Devotion - "Like God" by Chuck Leach

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis 1:27

Like God

Sunday School, at the tender age of ten

God is color blind,

he said.

Here we are black

and white, and all

different races.

When we get

to heaven

he said,

it won’t be

that way.

In heaven,

he said,

we will not

be different

we will all

be white

like God.

God, I know some of the things they taught me weren’t well thought out. One thing is clear: I really don’t know what to expect, and if you really are good, and kind, and true, it will all turn out just fine, no matter what they said; no matter what color I am, what side of the closet I’m on, or how many closets I’ve lived in. I trust you’ll help us figure it out one step at a time, and not let what we expect stop us from seeing what is, or get in the way of our being authentic. Help us expect good things, and live with love. Amen.
