Are you friends with anyone that doesn’t look like you? It’s easy to have work friends of another ethnicity, but how about outside of the workplace? One you see on a regular basis, or speak to frequently outside of work or church?
Five days a week, I drive to a park about 3 miles away from my home to do my 4-mile walk. Frequently, I have been seeing two gentlemen, one black, one white doing their morning walk. The first time I saw them, it really gave me a good feeling. I wondered whether they are neighbors. I assumed they are both retired. What do they talk about? Do they talk about family? Politics?
Anyway, why does this give me such a good feeling? Mmmmm. I guess it’s because it is something that I am not used to seeing; especially men their age. Also, I think it is also because I long to see our barriers torn down. After all, in heaven we will all be around the throne. There won’t be sections. We’ll be blended together, a rainbow of color praising Jesus, our Redeemer.
So today, while on my walk I captured harmony. I wanted to ask them questions, but not today.
Let’s reach out! The more we learn about each other, the more we learn we are the same.
