Rich and poor have this in common: The Lord is the Maker of them all!
We are all created by God. He would not create something he did not love!
Sometimes it is easy to get caught up on social status. We think that we are above some and below other due to our material possessions. We start to treat others differently because of the things they have or do not have. We see others for what we can gain from them or lose because of them. Well, this verse says it all. We are all created by the same maker and that maker is God. In other words, we all put our pants on one leg at a time!
Instead of concentrating on each other’s material goods, we should concern ourselves with what we are storing up in heaven. After all from dust we were made and to dust we will return!
Lord thank you for loving each and every person. Thank you for creating us all as equals and viewing us as so, not for the material things we possess but for the treasure that we find in you. Lord thank you for your love and equality.
