Here’s the situation: There is a sinking boat with 15 people on it, some of these people are kids adults and older adults with different backgrounds, ethnicities, and family history and one of them is even a accuses murderer. There is a life boat but it only holds 9 people. Pick who lives and who dies. How do you pick? How do you put more value on people than others? Don’t we do this daily? Maybe not pick who lives and who dies but we choose who we associate with and who we like and don’t like from a first glance. We judge people based on how they look, what ethnicity they are, and how together they seem. We forget that Jesus once ate dinner with sinners (Luke 19:1-10), healed the disabled (Luke 13:10-17) and forgave an adulterer (John 8:3-11). Jesus did not put more or less value on people. He loved and forgave everyone that sought to be forgiven. So as you go about your day remember that in Jesus’s eyes we are all God’s children, we are all loved, and we are all equal.
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
My name is Carly Smith and I am on the leadership team for FIGHT club. I help with making sure people write meetings, and making sure everyone knows what we talk about. I will be writing most of these posts on meetings that we have, but every now and again there will be a guest blogger. Please tell us what you think. I hope you enjoy:)
