One of the gifts my parents gave me was the ability to focus on people not color.
God made humans. The Tower of Babble and man’s desire for creating his own salvation is what lead to racism. In the Garden of Eden, there was Adam and Eve and they were without race. However, they had everything in them to genetically create all of us.
How can you ask for equality while defining it by race? That’s racism. When the color of a person’s skin defines who they are, no matter what color it is, that is discrimination. When you ask for something just because of the color of your skin, that is bigotry.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character…” That day has still not come. I look forward to it with longing in my heart and a drive in my body to do something to help create it’s coming.
I know that blessed day will not happen until we as a world no longer see in color but through the filter of God’s love and mercy for us. I am not here to judge, even though I do. I am not here to condemn. That is not my place. My place is to be and do the best I can knowing all along that it is not good enough.
I was born into sin but by the grace of God I will not die in it. Our God is a just God. Always!
Do you really want justice? Then remember that God is always just the next time you find yourself doing something you know you shouldn’t be. Guard even your thoughts because even thinking unclean or harmful thoughts are a sin and are punishable by death.
Show others mercy just as you have been shown mercy. Give others affection as you have been given adoration. Help, don’t hurt. Love, don’t hate and that dream of a better world will become our reality.
Thank you for joining me again today.
May you be blessed.
