What do all religions share? Religions are sets of beliefs, customs and practices. All religions believe in the supernatural, although they do not always define it in the same way. Some religions believe in a single being, or deity, usually termed "God", while others believe in multiple deities, or a non-personal supernatural force. Religions focus on earthly life, and how to live in the world, usually with the aim of growing closer to God, who is often understood to be eternal and therefore greater than time and the limits placed on any life lived on this earthly planet.

Most religions mark holy days, often through services, a rest from usual work or business, and sharing traditional foods. Many, although not all, have a set of scriptures, or holy texts. Most also have a set of ethics which guide adherents' relationships to their communities and to others in the world. Religious believers look for God in the world, in other people, in themselves, in nature, in the lives of the holy and in the words of scriptures.
