‘The earth is the Lord’s and all that fills it, the compass of the world and all who dwell therein.’ (Psalm 24.1)
The divisions in society are really being brought to the fore, by terrorism in France and Austria, by US election fever, by the effects of the pandemic. How do we react to those who incite division? The Biblical Devil is the Confuser, the Attacker, the Liar. The truth is that the earth is home for all of us. We are not all the same, but we have the same birthright. Divisions within or between families, communities and nations are the result of failure to see ourselves as the Psalmist says it. ‘The earth is the Lord’s and all that fills it, the compass of the world and all who dwell therein’.
