“Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also” Romans 3:29
It pleases us to know that God does not discriminate. He is the creator of everyone irrespective of our differences and diversity.
From the scriptures, we learn about how God supports social relationships as a means of reaching out to souls, preaching the gospel of salvation, and spreading the light of God’s love. We can also affirm this in the life of Jesus when he ministered to the Samaritan woman. He didn’t castigate her for being a Samaria. His encounter with one woman led to the salvation of many more people of Samaria.
Our relationship with people is of great value to God, as He expects us to replicate the life of Jesus Christ everywhere. More emphasis from the scriptures shows that God does not operate with a biased mindset. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” Romans 5:8.
We should be conscious of how well we relate with people because we are created in the image and likeness of God. Always remember that everyone you meet is God’s incarnate.
