Connoisseur of Cultures

Isn't it amazing that we are all made in God's image, and yet there is so much diversity among his people?  -Desmond Tutu

Paul, a Jew, was called to the Gentiles.  Paul had so much to offer others that there’s no way it could just be for people that looked like him, thought like him and spoke like him.  Instead he went to places like Arabia, Syria, and Greece and embraced the diversity in their cultures.  It’s no wonder Paul had a multicultural group of friends.  Some people today are too comfortable hanging out with their homogenous group of friends that have the same skin color, religion, or socioeconomic background.  Don’t just be tolerant of others; be intentional about making friends with people that are different than you.  Be connoisseur of cultures right in your own city.  Experience new food, music and traditions: and watch as your life becomes more richly blessed. 

I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some (1 Corinthians 9:22, KJV).
