Parent Minute

I hope my kids are color blind

Posted on 5/15/2019 by Greg Yoder

Noelle asked recently, how can we as parents and grandparents help our kids understand race? “As in, there’s only ONE race -- the Human race. There’s too much division going on in the country. Our biggest racial divide happens at 11 o’clock Sunday morning. How do we fix this?” Great question. Unfortunately sin complicates life. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone viewed us humans the way God does, humans who are equal before Him – sinners needing a Savior. Our “evolution-friendly” culture has programmed us (even the church) to think race is a skin color issue. Geneticists say any two people are only point-two percent different. Until the church starts preaching how God see us it may never change. Maybe, it should start with us.
