Ephesians 4:25

So then, putting away falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbors, for we are members of one another.

Members of one another

The notion that we are different is false. Oh we are different shapes and sizes. We are different skin tones and hair. We are different in language and culture. We are different in talents and opportunities. But we are members of a single human family. We stand together before the mysteries of the universe. We are creatures of one eternal heart.

We must put away falsehood. We must dispense with the lie that Mom loves me more. We must dispense with the lie that we are not connected. We must dispense with the lie that the tears of one are not the sorrows of the other. We must dispense with lie that the safety of one is not the safety of all. That the joy of one is not the joy of all. That the table of one is not the table of all.

We must put away falsehood. We must dwell in truth. We have one Father. We are members of one another.
