“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,” Martin Luther King Great words from a great man. But what I’ve observed in my 63 years is that just about everyone, white, black, brown, yellow, red has some type of prejudice or bias toward others.
Sad fact is that it’s not just the color of our skin that others will judge us by, but it is just about every aspect of our lives that can and will be criticized.
We are judged by our stature, the car we drive, the house we live in, our income, education, appearance, social status, religious beliefs, the list is endless. Human nature I guess – we want to be superior in some way.
Just maybe, planet earth could be a whole lot better if all mankind took the following words to heart in our daily lives, “Therefore, whatever you want man to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the Prophets,” Matthew 7:12 NKJV.
