Love breaks barriers

Posted: August 17, 2006 in Uncategorized

There are many barriers that get in the way of serving others. They are mostly man-made. We allow them to separate us. We seem to classify everything: educated vs. Un-educated, rich and poor, fat and thin, black and white. An essay shared on Greg Kramer’s blog led to a wonderful thought. The essay is a testimony from an African-American girl who had a mother that taught her to hate white people. She is placed in foster care at a white Italian lady’s home and begins to learn a lesson. The lesson learned is that love can be color-blind.
Read the essay by clicking the link above and then ask how we can share Christ with our community. Will we allow the barriers to continue to divide us – or will we allow genuine love and respect to tear down the walls of segregation and open up our hearts to share our faith with our neighbors? I pray that God will convict us of our favoritism and lead us to share His love with those the world tries to segregate us from.
