Neither black nor white

He is not human (numbers 23:19; NLT).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

No one has ever seen God (John 1:18; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

**********************************

Lord God,

You’re neither black nor white,
Nor male, nor female,

In fact, you are not human, Lord,
At all;

And though you make us mortals
In your image,

It’s clear that in some ways
We’re not like you.

You don’t belong
To any known religion,

And none of us
Has ever seen your face;

We only know you’re light,
And peace, and fire;

We only know that you are love,
And grace.
