‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler
If everyone were alike, what a dull world it would be. It is the individuality of each person that makes the world so interesting.
The tremendous differences in people give a wide range of personalities, beliefs, and appearances to very group, no matter how small.
If all the flowers in the world were of one color, would we think them so beautiful? It is the variety and wide range of rainbow colors that keeps us fascinated.
Cowper wrote, “Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.” So many have no thought of life except what they will eat, what they will wear, and how they can entertain themselves. And then we come on someone who has the ability to see loveliness in the sunlight and charm in quiet rain. They can say things to encourage, or to make calm and peaceful.
We meet many different kinds of people. Some we love and some we like and love, which is a terrible difference. It is to find a wholeness or a part of our lost self in someone else. It isn’t that they are so much like us or that we believe the way they do, but that they communicate, and it is this rare communication that respects the differences between peoples.
