Unity and Diversity in God’s Creation

A group of people with different races holding hands together side by side, symbolizing unity and diversity in God's creation.

God made many different kinds of people. We see this in Bible verses like Genesis 11 and Revelation 7. These stories show us everyone, from every place, is part of His big family. We all are different but God loves us the same.

This tells us we should love and accept each other, no matter where we’re from or how we look.

Genesis 11:1-9

"Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, ‘Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’ They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.’ But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.’ So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth."

In Genesis 11:1-9, Noah’s descendants built the Tower of Babel. They wanted to make a name for themselves. God saw their pride and mixed up their languages. Then, He scattered them across the earth.

This story explains why people speak different languages today.

Revelation 7:9

"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands."

Revelation 7:9 shows a huge crowd from every land, tribe, and language. They wear white robes and hold palm branches. This moment is a clear picture that God’s love reaches everyone around the world.

No one is left out in His grand kingdom.

Acts 2:5-11

"Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: ‘Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!’"

The Holy Spirit came down during Pentecost, giving the disciples power to speak in many languagesJews from every nation heard their own tongue spoken, showing God’s message is for all.

This event united diverse people, proving Christianity welcomes everyone.
