In a world where there should not be a boundary when it comes to love. Unfortunately in reality, we live in a place where people have a cap or visual of what and how a person should be or look like. There is also a “norm” of what a family should like. What so many fail to do is mind the business that pays them.
There are so many families that may look different, but their love for each other is as strong as any other family is. When you view from the innocent eyes of a child they don’t see color or see different, they are not aware that people despite their family, all they see in their sweet eyes, is unconditional love. There is no acceptance in their home and around most family members, or friends, but it is a factor in what love should look like in a cruel world where the color of your skin plays a factor in what love should look like.
In such a time, where skin color is a very sensitive subject, I have witnessed the ugliness of people that say, they love God and are Christians, but yet don’t portray the characteristic of one. There is no judgement, only looking at facts from even people I thought I knew. What are so many of us, forgetting? Love! One of my favorite verses: God loves you with a love that is increasing and overflowing.
How amazing is His love guys? He loves each and everyone of us, not because of who we are, what we have , what we have done, and even not the color of our skin.
How can someone who says they believe in God ( who is all about love) show so much hatred towards someone simply because their outer appearance looks different?
Did you know that many people are not accepted by family members because of being outcast for not fulfilling a visual of what the people in their circle “suppose” to look like. Disowning their own fleshing blood because of old beliefs or trying to live to outsiders standards.
There are times when people look on the outside of something, instead of either minding their business or showing enough respect to keep their very rude comments to themselves. Just because we don’t like something or agree with how someone decides to love or who they love, you should know that it’s their life and not yours.
