God’s Dream Part 2

June 14-20 Family Devotions
Part 2

This comes from Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s book God’s Dream

Week of June 14-20



God dreams that every one of us will see that we are all brothers and sisters—yes, even you and me—even if we have different mommies and daddies or live in different faraway lands.

Even if we speak different languages or have different ways of talking to God. Even if we have different eyes or different skin.

Even if you are taller and I am smaller. Even if your nose is little and mine is large.

Dear child of God, do you know how to make God’s dream come true? It’s really quite easy.

As easy as sharing, loving, caring. As easy as holding, playing, laughing.

As easy as knowing we are family because we are all God’s children.

Will you help God’s dream come true?

Let me tell you a secret…

God smiles like a rainbow when you do.

None of you should look out just for your own good. Each of you should also look out for the good of others.
—Philippians 2.4


Do you have some favorite cousins or other distant relatives?

If we’re all God’s children, doesn’t that make us all cousins? Doesn’t that make us all family?

Family Project

Pray: God, thank you for making us and everyone else too. We are your children, and we want to make your dream come true. Help us to share and love and care… for all our brothers and sisters, everywhere. Amen.
