Act 17:26 "And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.."
Some people in their carnal knowledge think that some human beings are superior to others because of their skin color or race.
Some think that the Whites are superior in intelligence and in some other human qualities compared to people of other colours.
This was the origin of apartheid and racism in the world. The Whites despise the Blacks and people of other colours thinking that the skin colour means superiority, or that God made them with a difference.
The reality is that all peoples of the world came from Adam. Adam is the progenitor of all races, whether you are Black, White or coloured.
Life is in the blood and our blood is the same.
Today's key scripture (Acts 17:26) is saying that the blood of all human beings are from the same source. Blood group classification is universal among all races of the world. Blood group A or B or 0+ etc. is the same in all races and among all tribes and colours.
This means a black man can donate blood to a white man in the same blood group and a Japanese can donate blood to an Indian if they share the same blood group.
If it be so, the battles of superiority or feeling of inferiority among races is unnecessary and carnal.
The pride that people manifest because of their race should be absent.
A Nigerian should not see himself as superior to a Cameroonian, neither should he feel inferior to an American. The same God created them both.
Lifestyles may differ, the types of food we eat may differ because of our different climatic conditions, our tradition and manner of dressing may be different because of different historical and cultural background, but in terms of quality of creation as human beings, there is no difference.
God does not discriminate. It is therefore a sin to discriminate against people on account of tribe or race or colour.
You must see all human races as the same and their peoples as fellow brothers and sisters.
If you look down on them or feel inferior to them, how do you evangelize the multitudes trooping to hell?
Thought for The Day:
God did not create one superior to the other. Stop discriminating...
Song for The Day:
Give me love for my brethren, love from above,
Bible Reading for The Day:
1 Chronicles 1-2; John 7:32-53
