“Do we not all share one father? Has not one God created us all? Why do we all act deceitfully with our brothers and sisters and soil the covenant between God and our ancestors?” (Malachi 2: 10, the Voice Translation)
We are brothers and sisters. We are one family. We have one Father and Mother Who lovingly conceived each one of us.
Let’s treasure each other as we would our own dear family members. Let’s remember that even those that seem so far from us in ideology or in culture or geographically, are still truly our brethren. We are all the offspring of God—infinite good, the Creator of all that is—and so we have a common bond.
And that bond is God Himself; it is Truth and Love. Sure, family members argue. Blood does not necessarily make us alike and always agreeable. But God’s family is more than blood. It is a covenant, as this verse reminds us, a holy contract between our Father and His children. And this is an agreement that we should honor, keep pure by our thoughts and behavior.
For treating others deceitfully and unkindly goes against the eternal Truth of Life itself. God is One, and His law requires unity. And so, our universal family must harmonize, sing forth together in the name of Love. This obeys God’s law and reveals powerful and natural blessings for one and all.
