Denny answers:God made people special and different from each other.
God made the first people, Adam and Eve, with the ability to have children of lighter or darker skin. Different shades of skin show our creative God. He certainly didn't make our world boring! God made us each with different sizes and different colors of eyes, hair, and skin.
All of these differences make us each special. No one is just like you! God loves the way He made you, so you can thank Him for making you specially different from everyone else. We should celebrate our differences and love each other the way God loves us.
Go back to:
- "We all have the same father; the same God made us" (Malachi 2:10, NCV).
- "The God who made the whole world and everything in it is the Lord of the land and the sky. He does not live in temples built by human hands. This God is the One who gives life, breath, and everything else to people. He does not need any help from them; he has everything he needs. God began by making one person, and from him came all the different people who live everywhere in the world. God decided exactly when and where they must live. God wanted them to look for him and perhaps search all around for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us: 'By his power we live and move and exist.' Some of your own poets have said: 'For we are his children'" (Acts 17:24-28, NCV).
- "You made my whole being; you formed me in my mother's body. I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well. You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother's body. When I was put together there, you saw my body as it was formed. All the days planned for me were written in your book before I was one day old" (Psalm 139:13-16, NCV).
