Everyone has an obsession with statistics these days. Seems like every time I turn around, someone is citing stats about racism, stats about crime, stats about black on black shootings, stats about protests & police brutality, says about Asian lives & black lives, etc.
In my opinion, here are the most important statistics to consider:
How many hours have you spent trying to understand or comprehend what it might be like to walk in the shoes of someone who is different from you? Exactly how many cups of coffee have you bought for someone with a different skin color or ethnicity? Specifically, how many fist bumps, high fives, or hugs have you exchanged with someone of a different nationality or race?
The reason why those stats are important, is because (if you call yourself a Christian) that’s what you’re gonna be doing for all of eternity.
The #verseoftheday is
“After these things I looked, and here was an enormous crowd that no one could count, made up of persons from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb dressed in long white robes, and with palm branches in their hands.”
You should get used to loving people who are different from you, because you’re going to have to spend eternity worshipping Jesus beside them.
