It's Time to Stop the Hate

It's time to stop all the hate in this country and learn to compromise and accept others.  God made each and every person in this country and loves each and every one of us just the same.  We are ALL made in his image.  God doesn't discriminate because of the color of one's skin or whether a person has straight or curly hair.  He doesn't discriminate because one is fat or thin, whether one is gay or straight, whether one is old or young, whether one is athletic or disabled, whether one wears a 3-piece suit or a hoodie.  God loves each of his children and wants them all to treat others as they want to be treated themselves.  I used to teach my Sunday School classes that, just like a box of crayons, God liked to color and he made people in all kinds of colors.  Has anyone ever criticized a child for coloring a cow blue just because that child likes blue?  So why do people criticize God for making people different colors?  God gave us all voices to sign and musical languages to sign in.  God likes variety.  He gave us different religions so humanity can celebrate his goodness and love in different ways.  None of them are wrong...and not one of them is more "right" than the other.  It's the human part that gets in the way of understanding and appreciating the gifts God created.  Like a box of crayons...we are all the same but different.  Yes, it's time to stop the hate and learn to appreciate the colors of the rainbow.
