Two little girls, of two different races, walking down the hall holding hands, that’s what I saw one morning. As I passed them, one told me (with genuine joy), “This is my sister!”
Young children are many things, but they aren’t naturally biased.
Can we all get along?Rodney King
The apostle Paul thought so. “The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ — Galatians 5:14 (NIV). He then warned the church at Galatia that if they kept “biting and devouring” each other, they would destroy each other.
Next, he offers the solution: “So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.” — Galatians 5:16
Only through the power of the supernatural, by God’s grace, can we love others as well as we love ourselves.
🙏 Heavenly Father: please help us to be like those two little girls, today and every day. For, as the song says, 🎶”They’ll know we are Christians by our love.”🎶 AMEN
