The United States is a nation of immigrants. Think about it, except for First Nation peoples, we’re all descendants of immigrants. Some of those immigrants come with a racial stigma. Russians supposedly interfered with our elections. Latin American immigrants are treated as criminals. Middle Eastern immigrants are many times labeled terrorists. Kids are listening. Parents, if we’re speaking badly about these people groups, we’re teaching our kids bigotry. The Bible says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28 NASB). We’re also called to care for the oppressed. When we do, love opens doors for the gospel. We’re all made in God’s image. Let’s teach our kids that.
