Tensions are high in the United States with race relations. It’s not unique to the U.S. We’ve seen it in just about every nation. Some say racism is a learned behavior. Others say the sin of racism isn’t a learned behavior—it’s actions are rooted in our hearts. As Christian parents, what’s our responsibility? We need to teach love of all mankind, which is created in God’s image. How do we do it? Look no further than Jesus. He reached out to the Samaritan woman—not something many Jews did at the time. He interacted with tax collectors and prostitutes—something religious leaders flat-out rejected. Let’s be an example to our kids. Make friends with people different than we are. Reach out to a person whose actions suggest they need Christ desperately.
