Color does not define us. Ethnicity does not define us. Race does not define us. All of mankind was created in God’s own image. We are one, bonded by spirit.
Violence against our fellow citizen based on race is not an American value… not a Christian value… and should never be condoned. In this time, I am reminded of Philippians 2:3 KJV:
“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”
The historical struggles of mankind to embrace the true love of brotherhood, as intended by Christ, continues. Our nation, our world, seeks redemption. But redemption is not a destination. It’s a journey. Each of us is on that journey. Our nation…though anointed by God… is on that journey. Let us pray for peace amongst our fellow Americans.
