It's hard to watch the news and not get distressed about all the racial hatred and violence we see. The Bible says that love is the antidote to hate. 1 Peter 4:8 says, Most importantly, love each other deeply. Love has a way of not looking at others’ sins. There is so much wrong in the world right now (it's been that way since the Fall), and Satan continues to stir people up to hatred and violence. But if we truly love people, we overlook our differences. We see them through God's eyes. The Bible also says that we are all equal, regardless of race. Galatians 3:28 says, Now, in Christ, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Greek, a slave or free, male or female. You are all the same in Christ Jesus.
If you want to make a difference, love people, regardless of the colour of their skin, or where they were born, or which side of town the live on. Don't just love in words, but love in action. Smile at everyone, not just the people who look like you. Talk to them, be kind to them, help them.
