I saw this horrible article and it reminded me about what’s really important in life and how God would want us to act. Does God want a white girl not to go to a prom with a black friend? Aren’t we all created equal in His eyes? If so, how could the reaction of her father be excused?
We talk here often about the problems some of the black community is causing throughout our country, with Black Lives Matter, blacks killing blacks in Chicago, some expecting reparations, etc., etc.. These are not good people in general, not because they’re black. We all know whites involved with activist groups we disagree with, and white cops who’ve killed people without apparent provocation, and wanting the world to take care of them, right?
I know black young men FAR finer than some white men in this country…you probably all do.
SO, this father tells his daughter she’s out of his life, dead to him, he’s not paying for college, she should go live with the “ni**ers”. In 2017, when we like to think most people are past this hate.
I think racism is something we should pray against. I have a black girlfriend who told me once “If you want to see racism, go to a black barber shop,” : we all know racism isn’t only a white thing…absolutely NOT! So, both sides…….prayer can’t hurt.
Pray for unity, pray for people on both sides to be kinder in general, to judge people on who they are, not what color they are.
Something hopeful is that the major gang leader of a VERY well known Los Angeles gang has been following Jesus for the last few years and I have a friend who’s working on helping him interact with the kids who idolize this guy, to bring faith and peace and love to those kids. Please pray about that, too. Please.
“Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.” 1 John: 2:9
Help others come out of that darkness…
Have a beautiful Sunday. Z
