Thoughts for Today
There is a danger in rejecting or misjudging someone because they are different from us. First of all, the Bible tells us that prejudice is a sin, one that blocks our ability to love others as we should.
We could even miss a blessing from God by rejecting strangers due to prejudice. This was the mistake that the people of Jesus' time on earth made when they rejected him as the promised Messiah and King. Because Jesus did not come in the way they expected, they crucified him.
We can also miss an opportunity to bless othersmaybe even an opportunity to help them find Jesuswhen we allow these invisible walls of prejudiceeven subtle onesto build.
