I grew up in Miami, which means that most of my friends where something other than white. It really wasn’t until Middle School when I began experiencing the ugly face of racial prejudice. But be that as it may, I have some (human) thoughts on what has been happening in Ferguson, and, contrary to what the media portrays, happens on a regular basis around the country.
God created diversity to inspire creativity and appreciation, no to be spur divisiveness and vindictiveness.
Sin is sin…regardless of who is guilty of it. If we focus on moral, we cannot be distracted by color.
Justice is something that God will ultimately sort out (Genesis 18:25)–because He is not only holy (Isaiah 6) but He is also righteous and concerned with the oppressed (Psalm 103:6).
Since none of us, however, was actually there when the tragic events that spawned these Ferguson riots occurred, perhaps we should stop passing judgement and simply extend respect and love toward each other, regardless what color the recipient’s skin is. One thing I am certain of: God’s love is not prejudiced. “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him” (Acts 10:34).
