I just read an article that started with this line: “Man by nature tends to take pride in the color of his skin.” Of course, this is in the aftermath of the Charlottesville riot. I thought “really.” It makes it sound like we are all sitting around all the time contemplating the skin we are wearing. I must be honest with the thought never crosses my mind. To be even more honest I don’t think about your skin color either. Don’t get me wrong, if you are black, I recognize that you are black. And if you are proud of being black, you should be. But, I just don’t think about it.
What I do spend time thinking about is, how wonderful it is that we are all made in the image of God. And that everyone, no matter who, needs to know Jesus Christ, Son of God and savior of the world. And I would rather talk to you about that.
