Galations 3:28: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
The Apostle Paul wrote the above in a letter to the church at Galatia some 2000 years ago. Jesus taught equality and lived it in His daily life. The following is an article I ran across, along with a wonderful photograph that gives us cause to stop and think…
Children Don’t See Color – the World Forces It on Them
Below is a photograph from 1973. It shows five friends, hugging and having fun. The picture is a scene of pure bliss and friendship. These children don’t see color; three are black and two are white, yet they don’t care. When they look at one another, these kids don’t even see color. We should learn how to view the world through children’s eyes.
According to the original photographer, “The world seems to be filled with misunderstanding, which often leads to anger, fear, and ultimately hatred and violence. Whether it is violence based on race or gender or religious or political differences, it all seems very unnecessary to me. The simple message is that we are all human. We all bleed the same. I think we all want the same basic things out of life – to live in peace and have food and shelter and to be loved. Maybe I am naïve or overly idealistic. I’m a product of the sixties. I grew up thinking that we could end war and that basic human justice was a real possibility. I get very cynical sometimes about the state of the world and our society in particular, but when I look at those kids it makes me think we could learn a lot from their innocence.”
