No one is better than anyone else.

G-Pop teaches all of his children this universal principle.

It creates the even playing field, where we can start finding the better parts of our humanity.

Unfortunately, there is an imitator out there in the social media which tempts G-Pop’s kids with a falsehood:

Everyone is different.

It seems to be an open-minded, gentle, accepting and tolerant approach. The fact is. every war, conflict and dissension in the history of mankind has been fueled by this idea that everyone is different.

After a while, we get tired of being willing and we retreat to our high-minded sense of superiority.

We get weary of being restrained and we start cursing others.

And then, we give up, go out and try to kill them.

This approach has other disguised phrases:

  • Everyone has a culture.
  • Everyone deserves a chance.
  • Everyone should have what they need.
  • Everyone matters.

Even though these sound sweet to the ear, they are sour to the tastefulness required to create justice.

We don’t need a culture, especially when it alienates us from others. Feel free to have customs and preferences, but don’t use them as an excuse to separate you off from the rest of the world.

Secondly, we’re not guaranteed a chance unless we’re willing to grant the same blessing to others. Those who refuse will ultimately be refused.

Also, aiding the needy has a noble edge, but no one deserves to have their daily bread without offering their daily willingness.

And finally, the truth is, we don’t matter unless we are willing to let others matter equally. Segregating a segregationist is necessary to eliminate segregation.

So what is the answer?

Let’s start with common sense.

Common sense says that God is no respecter of persons. In other words, America is not exceptional and the rest of the world trailing behind.

This affords us the opportunity for common ground.

God loves the whole world. As a human being, I have one job: to express His mercy to the world around me. His judgment belongs to Him and Him alone. I am not supposed to separate the wheat from the weeds–He will do that when the last trumpet sounds.

And ultimately, common good.

Jesus made it clear that if we love our family and friends more than other people, we are heathens. It’s pretty direct, isn’t it? It is my responsibility to extend the same grace, compassion and humor to strangers that I afford my children.

Everyone is not different. We share much in common, including sin.

And because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, we have a “humanhood” of inadequacy which should give us the tenderness to express generosity to those around us.
