Dr Alveda King addressed the race-baiting Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of this country…”(stop) stirring up the people without positive solutions.” Too bad these greedy men have not listened to her admonition!
On this third day, after the Zimmerman “Not Guilty” verdict….racially motivated attacks upon “whites” are being reported all over the country…and the Rev. “Al” is planning a 100 City Protest this weekend…expecting what?
Americans, of all races, should reject Jackson and Sharpton’s calls for division! These men and women are the true racists…claiming to care for “their people”…while abusing them, for personal gain.
If Americans today reject this decades-long effort to divide us, we might be blessed with a genuine societal peace. It is our choice…if we accept the current effort to expand racial hatred, we will be much worse off. Do we want that?
I have a motto when coaching basketball…”Make it Good!” When you find yourself in “Bad”…(unfair, overwhelming, seemingly hopeless)…Make it Good!…bring a positive result from the negative situation.
The greatest GOOD often arises out of BAD!
The crucifixion-death of Jesus was the ultimate “bad to good!” Many on opposite sides of this current American racial issue claim to be His followers. Will we ask Him to make good out of bad here in America?…and will we accept His direction?
“He who digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit he has made. The trouble he causes recoils on himself; his violence comes down on his own head.” (Psalm 7:15-16/NIV)
“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.” (Romans 12:9/NLT)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
