In the past two days, I have learned about One Health, which is a multidisciplinary health practice that shows how human, animal and environmental health is all connected. It seems like common sense, but it’s not as we don’t think that way. But we are all connected. Today’s verse of the day illustrated that to a key. remember, we are all one people created by God. We are one people. that doesn’t mean we have all experienced the same things or are identical. We are unique individuals but one people, one world that should be loved and respected.

Today’s Question: How do you treat people as individuals but are respected as one people? What can you do to support those who don’t feel part of the group?

  • Ephesians 2:19-20 – Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
  • Galatians 3:26-28 – For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

God loves all his children no matter where they are from or who they are. God created everyone uniquely and equally. When we look at these verses, and in the context of One Health, we are connected. Our differences impact one another as our health impacts the community. Our job is twofold. One is to recognize that everyone is part of the group and not an “other”. The second is to respect our differences and grow together. We should use these differences and gifts to build rather than divide our group. There is enough love to go around! God is love.

As we close, remember we are one world, one people with different strengths and gifts. Let’s respect that and love as Jesus loved us.


Father God, we thank you for creating us in love. Help us to be connected, to love, to respect, and build our lives together. We are different and thank you for that. Help us to stay connected, recognize that we are connected, and grow. We pray for understanding and love. In your name, Amen.
