On Your Heart Tuesdays
Today, I am linking up with http://www.shandaoakleyinspires.com/p/on-your-heart-tuesdays. What is on my heart today? True colors. Are your true colors, beautiful like a rainbow, or is there quite a bit of darkness in your true colors? Please know, that this post is not meant to offend anyone, I never want to do that. I am just speaking my mind, and expressing my feelings. But, if it makes you think a little bit, that is just an added bonus my friends. Do you have any hidden prejudices against anyone? Recently, a dear friend of mine, received a beautiful new addition to her family. Her youngest son got married, and gave my friend, a precious gift, her lovely daughter in-love. My friend, was quite shocked, when her son first started dating JoJo. They met at the Christian college they both attended, both shared a great love for Jesus, and music. The only difference, Tobin, her son, is white, and JoJo is black. That definitely raised some eyebrows in the family. But, praise God, the family stood together, and overcame their prejudices, and gladly welcomed JoJo into the family. Several months ago, they welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. They are both serving as music directors at their church, and are so happy. I love them both. My question, why the prejudices? God loves us all, He sees no color. In my opinion love has no color. I have always loved the song"Jesus loves the little children." Red&yellow, black&white, they are all precious in His sight. Well, guess what, children grow up, to become adults. Jesus loves all adults, regardless of color, race, or nationality. You have no right to choose only your own color, race, or nationality to love, not if you are truly living a Christian life. God is love, and He is living within us. We are to love, and accept everyone. I beg you, do not be color blind. Spread the love of Jesus to everyone, the world is such a beautifully blended rainbow. Enjoy!!
