Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
Recently the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March occurred in our nations Capitol led by the very angry Islamic black leader Louis Farakhan. His hatred for whites, police, the establishment, and the United States is extremely sad especially when young black moms had their children there to be part of it and this the hate cycle never ends teaching hate and not love and reconciliation?! It blows my mind. So many were buying into it. This would have been the perfect setting for a major riot.
Our problem is our heart not the color of our skin. To stir up major anger in our nation's Capitol is not right. Our 'black' president has certainly not united us as a people and does anything he can do to stir up dissent particularly against conservative citizens, those who do not agree with his way or the highway, and law enforcement to name a few. Only God can heal the hatred deep in the hearts of these people.
Christians of all colors are to come together not for hate rallies but to unite us in prayer and as a people. Today a movie is being released that people of all races should go see. It is a true story and filmed in Birmingham. It is about racial problems and reconciliation at the former Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama. I was privileged to see the premier a couple weeks back. I have included a link to the movie at the end of this devotion. We need prayer and Jesus now more than ever.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus if I have hate in my heart for anyone help me to give it to you. Help those people who are racist give their racism to God and ask for healing. Help us learn to forgive and to love. Also pray for those people who stir up hate that Jesus would come into their hearts. In Jesus' name. Amen.
