Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

#atozchallenge D is for…

All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril.

It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors. Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the art work is new, complex and vital.
~ Oscar Wilde ~

Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God called Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
~ 1 Corinthians 12:3-7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 5 of the A to Z Challenge. Its been said that variety is the spice of life. I believe the same can be said of diversity being the spice of life.  

The upside to diversity is realizing that we all bring talent to the table. (smile)

Diversity opens up opportunities between us.
Diversity is about learning from one another.
Diversity ____________(fill in the blank)
Dignity toward different
Insight into different
Value different
Empathize with different
Respect different 
Shift focus about different
Involve different
Take time to know different
Yes to keep moving forward

There are many dimensions to diversity; the key is remembering God made us all different. (smile)

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy today. 

Your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

It’s important to recognize that we don’t have to do it all or be it all. We give and take and enjoy the contributions others can make that we can not. Great post!
