"So God created man in His image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." - Genesis 1:27
Oh, I really cannot stand what has happened to the way people view one another. I don't know if this has just happened in the last few years or if it has always been this way, but regardless of when it began it needs to stop now.
I'm talking about the race factor. I'm so tired of the way we treat one another simply because of the color of their skin. Black, white, red, yellow, whatever! Does it really matter? Do you think God looks at us and says, "Well I will bless him more because he is _______ (choose color)."? I certainly don't.
The Bible tells us that we are created in His image. Not yours, not mine, but HIS. Each one of us on this earth has a little piece of the Lord in us. He created us in His likeness and I don't think He wants us to treat one another as if only certain crowds have been created in His image. We all are! That's the beauty of the differences we have, we still have one thing that brings us together... Jesus! The color of our skin doesn't matter. If we are all coming together as the body of Christ and fulfilling His plan for us, who cares if you're white or black or brown?
I challenge myself to not pay any attention to color of skin, but to really see people... to see their hearts and personalities. To see their hurt and their love. To see them for who they are in Christ Jesus. Would join in with me? If we are the change, we can change the world. Our examples can make a HUGE difference and impact. Let's follow God's Word and simply love regardless. Might be hard, but well worth it!!! Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!
