Daily Prompt 3/2/2016: Divide
Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
As I sip my cup of coffee and reflect on the word for today’s daily prompt, it came to my mind the chaotic picture of our present society. There is division in different parts of the world. Division in color and race, political, and religious differences. Because we are riddled with division, conflict, terrorism and mutual distrust, we live in a world of chaos characterized by corruption, exploitation, oppression and injustice. Social and news media even worsen our situation. The thoughts of all of these negativity send chills down my spine. Division is an ancient global problem and history repeats itself. But what if we take a moment and recollect what we have in common, reflect the reason of our existence then stand united?
What do we have in common? God created us in His own image. Humans are divergent in nature. We differ in ideologies, emotions, cultural backgrounds, educational attainment, political, and even on religious beliefs. But we are all the same in the eyes of the Lord. We exist in His glory. We have a heart to love and to forgive, so why waste time on hatred?
We do not know what the future holds. But all I know is love endures because God loves us so much. Peace begins with all of us. It is a global battle we have been trying to resolve since the beginning of humanity. But if we stand united, peace is within our grasp.
Remember, united we stand, divided we fall.
