“He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4 ESV)
I grew up in a small town, class sizes were limited, and predominantly white.
My first memory of meeting a different culture was Hindi, but that was grade school and their Mom came in to talk with us about their culture. It was an awesome experience.
Middle school came and I met a lot of new folks - different cultures, colors and preferences. I had no problem as long as they were kind.
I know generations before me may have had different experiences.
I was starting to be fearful with the riots. A friend was feeling the same way. We need to be part of the solution - pray, talk to a police officer and see how we can help, write our officials, etc.
Did I mention PRAY? We have access to I AM, the one who made us for a purpose. Don’t let fear defeat you - remember who is greater!
