Change Begins With Me

Kathy A. E. Jones – Guest Blogger

You’ve asked yourself a thousand times, “If the world was created by a loving God, how did it evolve into a society where we are consumed with so much racial tension?” You’ve prayed about it, tried to get answers from family members, trusted friends and even highly respected spiritual leaders. But the truth is, you cannot put the two together. Perhaps you are feeling a little disgusted with yourself and your inability to accept the fact that a loving God has allowed all this racial unrest to forcefully impact your life.

You can continue to allow your frustrations to propel you towards an unfulfilling destination where racial injustice rains down like water or you can do something about it. If you want real change, healthier relationships and leave a society that your children will find easier to live in, you should consider the following.

God is not “Color Blind.” He lovingly created each race with different skin tones. When it comes to how we treat each other, He is definitely not “Sin Blind” either. It is God’s will that we love like He loves.

The Bible says in Matthew 7:12 “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you; do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets”…  In other words, the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

The journey of the Israelites under the rule of Pharaoh is another vivid example of God’s sincere concern for racial justice and how much he abhors the sin of it.

Today we’re not only having to deal with racial tension in the world, but now we must deal with it in the church.  It has been said that the most segregated hour in the world takes place on Sunday morning in the church.  Tune in to “Silently Bleeding” to see how Jan and Kathy have navigated through this sensitive arena as Pastor’s wives.

                            Sincerely,
