His Dream is My Dream

I felt like writing this in the light of what is going on today. The “I Have A Dream” speech I want to always ring true. However, I see much division in the nation. I see more mistrust on either side than I care to see. Even amongst my own brothers and sisters in Christ. This cuts me to the heart. On both sides, people seek to be understood before seeking to understand. People make dangerous assumptions, based on how someone looks. I don’t only mean black and white. I mean people from different parts of the world. We say someone is “privileged” or “oppressed” simply because of how they look. When you sit down and have a conversation you may realize that someone may have it worse off or better off than you. Have that conversation before making an assumption! Especially, if you’re a Christian. Regard no one from a worldly point of view. Every human being is created in God’s image and we need to aim to see them the way God sees them (1 Samuel 16:7). Yes, this is long, but just like MLK aimed for people to be judged by the content of their character and aim for us all to work together, I aim to do the same. So thankful for Dr. King’s example and the bold spirit God gave him.
