Did God Make a Mistake When He Made Black People?
We The People of the United States of America are seeing our country deeply divided over continued racism and the abuse of power. Osheta Moore from Woodland Hills Church in Minneapolis, MN tearfully stated, “God made us Black and He didn’t make a mistake in making us Black.” This statement was recorded during a question and answer session on May 31, 2020, on a weekly podcast from Woodland Hills Church in Minneapolis, MN.
Her question made me ask myself: Did God make a mistake when he made Black people? Did God make a mistake when He made people that look and act differently from each other? Did He know what He was doing when He made all these richly diverse and unique races and cultures?
In the Kingdom of God, there is no room for racism and division. Revelation 7:9
In the Kingdom of God, abuse of power is not tolerated. Proverbs 24:11-12
In the Kingdom of God, believers are to bring justice to the oppressed. Psalm 82:2-4
Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the down-andouters. Speak out for justice! Stand up for the poor and destitute. Proverbs 31:8-9 MSG
Jesus Christ, O that You would help us through this pivotal and tumultuous time. Keep shining Your Light on the darkness. I pray for our people and nation. Racism and the abuse of power runs deep. Show each of us individually if we are prejudiced or judgmental or blind to the plight of our neighbors. Show us as a nation how to be agents of change and reconciliation in this world. Your Message is one of restoration and relationship with You and then with our neighbor. Help us as a country and as a people to navigate from hate to love on all sides of these issues. To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly. Micah 6:8 Please protect all those involved in these changing and often threatening times. Amen.
Therefore see that you walk carefully [living life with honor, purpose, and courage; shunning those who tolerate and enable evil], not as the unwise, but as wise [sensible, intelligent, discerning people], making the very most of your time [on earth, recognizing and taking advantage of each opportunity and using it with wisdom and diligence], because the days are [filled with] evil. Ephesians 5:15-16 AMP
“You need to know your neighbor in order to love them.” Rick Warren
