Under God, One Family

 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! 
And that is what we are! 
The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
1 John 3:1

Humanity, humanity
Intelligence, insanity
Humility and vanity
Within dust-vessels spar
Humanity, humanity
Companionship and enmity
On this one thing we must agree
What common kin we are

So different and yet the same
All capable of shame and blame
Sin-cursed into this world we came
And needy of God’s grace
Humanity, humanity
With God, no anonymity
Because He made both you and me
We have a purposed place

Humanity, humanity,
Life’s most complex simplicity
Where culture and ethnicity
Does not define our worth
Humanity, humanity
We, under God, one family
He, Father of love and mercy
To we, the sons of earth

SO much brokenness in this world! And there is no room for finger-pointing because we all need 
The One Healer by whose stripes we are healed!

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
