There are no strangers in God’s creation.

There are no strangers in God’s creation. To create as He created you can create only what you know, and therefore accept as yours. God knows His children with perfect certainty. He created them by knowing them. He recognizes them perfectly. When they do not recognize each other, they do not recognize Him. T-3.III.7:7-12

Once you see the Divine Spark in all God’s creation there are no strangers. You know them all. If you do not recognize another, it is because you do not know the Ground of Being, the Transcendent Source, the Life which animates all living things.

In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested, in step twelve, that we carry the message of our spiritual awakening to other people suffering from alcohol and other addictions. They don’t realize who and what they are: children of God. If they knew this they would experience great peace and joy. Having been spiritually awakened, we see this spark of the Divine in all people.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. When we know this inherent worth and dignity in others, there are no strangers. We then can live our sixth principle which is a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

Today, I will look past superficialities and know the Divine in every one I meet. I will realize there are no strangers among us.
