PINK IN THE MIDDLE!

Would you do me a favor? Would you go to your bathroom mirror and stick out your tongue? Now, don't worry....if your home is like our home you would be in BIG trouble if you stuck out your tongue, but this time it's okay. I promise. Look way down inside your throat and I'll wait until you get back!

Okay. Are you back? Some of you didn't go, did you??? Well, anyway, what did you see? That little flappy thing in the back of your throat? Yes, but what color do you see in there? PINK! We're all PINK in the middle! God made us with all different colors of skin. He made us with all different colors of eyes and hair. He made us all different sizes and with all different abilities. But, WE'RE ALL PINK IN THE MIDDLE!

When it gets right down to it, we're all the same on the inside, just different on the outside. In God's eyes we are all are equal. He wants all to come to know Him. He does not show favoritism as Romans 2:11 states, "For God does not show favoritism."

God doesn't want us to show favoritism, either. We sing the sweet song, "Jesus Loves the Little Children"...."red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight" from the time we are little bitty to aged, but sometimes our words and actions don't show that love like they should.


"But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it." James 2:9-10.

Now, for those of you who didn't look in the mirror before, go look now. Okay? Did you do it? What color did you see?


See, I told you - WE'RE ALL PINK IN THE MIDDLE!

My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism. James 2:1

Have a great day!
