We're All God's Children Worldwide


Galatians 3:26-28

For all you are children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.  And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on new clothes.  There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female.  

For you are all one in Christ Jesus.



Ok, I am not the sharpest tool in the shed...although I have been known to be wise.


I grew up in a city, San Francisco California, where there were many of us friends of different colors and backgrounds; that's just the way that city was and still is.  So, as a child, I grew up with the knowledge that we are really all the same and just had different lifestyles.


Then I go to college in 1990.  I'm sitting in a Political Science class and the subject came up of 

' being prejudice '.  I say, " prejudice of what? "  The whole class turned around and looked at me...and one person said, " people of different colors ".  I remember my eyes got big and I said, 

" you're kidding me, right? "  They all had this blank look on their face and one person said, " where have you been? "  and my response..." Not where you've been "  ...and that was that...we all just went back to our studies.


When the subject comes up now and again, I always say, " I did not know that prejudice existed until 1990! ", and I still get surprised reactions.


What Choice Did We Have At Birth?


This whole prejudice thing got me to thinking....

NO ONE...NOT ONE OF US...

-   had a choice as to what color we would be born

-   had a choice where we would be born, what country, or

-   had a choice as to what family we would be born into


We all could just as easily have been born a different color, been born in a different country and 

been born to a different family......and been hated and bullied upon as other people have been.  Though in today's world we are all bullied now, even white people now too.  


Most people of color seem to hate all white people now because they don't like President Trump and they seem to be blaming the Immigration Issue on all white people and as a result most people of color are treating all the white people they come in contact with badly, hating on them and bullying them, and not giving them as good of service in business establishments.


I happen to look white but I do not now or ever did feel like I am a ' color ' . For about 10 years of my life I used to fill out that section on the forms... ' other - human being ' . Then later I thought, well maybe they need this information for their census.


It was around 2011 when I started noticing that I was being prejudiced against too!  by people of color! What happened to 'do unto others as you want them to do unto you? '


Mathew 7:12

THE GOLDEN RULE

'Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you.  

This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets'.


so now we are all prejudiced against

and now no one can say they are singled out anymore


Now from what I can tell there are about 20% of us human beings of all colors and nationalities that actually do smile at each other in today's world knowing that we are all individuals....and not a 'color'...

how nice that is when I experience that!  Thank you God in Jesus' name.....Amen
