This week we celebrate the life of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., who said: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin.”

   In the Bible, God reveals that we are all children of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:20, Acts 17:26). We are all one race, one family of human beings. God wants us to treat each other with respect and love (Romans 13:8-10, James 2:1). While we as sinful humans often fail to treat each other as we should, God treats us all equally. (Romans 2:11, Acts 10:34-35, Colossians 3:11)

   Jesus died for everyone in the whole world, of every nationality, every language, and every skin color (Revelation 5:9, 1 John 2:2, 1 John 4:14, John 3:16). People from every nation, tribe, people and language will be in heaven praising God for all eternity (Revelation 7:9).

   May God give each of us the love to treat each other as brothers and sisters.
