A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Their domestic tranquility had long been the talk of the town, and on this special occasion, a local newspaper reporter paid them a visit. He inquired as to the secret of their long and happy marriage.
“Well,” explained the husband, “it all goes back to our honeymoon. We visited the Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom of the canyon by pack mule.”
“We hadn’t gone too far when my wife’s mule stumbled. My wife quietly said ‘That’s once.’ We proceeded a little farther when the mule stumbled again. Once more my wife quietly spoke: ‘That’s twice.’ We hadn’t gone a half-mile when the mule stumbled a third time. My wife promptly removed a revolver from her purse, hopped down off the beast, and shot the mule dead.”
“I started to protest over her treatment of the mule when she looked at me and quietly said, ‘That’s once.’”

I was going to end the blog right there thinking my job here is done and then I saw this today.
Five students from Pleasant Run Elementary ages from 9 to 10 years of age just won their first bot challenge in Plainfield, Ind. As these students and their parent and families were walking through the parking lot to their vehicles 2 to 3 of the student peers along with their parents shouted “Go back to Mexico”. I should point out that 3 of the students on the bot team are Latino and the other 2 are African American. Inserting scripture bomb here.
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. 1John2:9 (ESV)
Which translates into “If you think you are a Christian but do not like your fellow person for whatever reason then you should re-think what it means to be a Christian”.
Last week I blogged my fear that all the things that we are doing in the United States now may create prejudice my fear has now become reality. I could cite many sources as to the origin of the ever increasing prejudice but that would be pointless. The simple matter is that if we want to change those fears and prejudice then it has to start with “We the People”. Prejudice can start with only one person but it will take all the people to overcome the fear and prejudice that has been created. If you don’t believe me look up Adolf Hitler in your world history books. He started the fear and prejudice against the Jewish people just to unite his fellow countrymen into a devastating world war. Now that prejudice lives on as another tool for another group of people who…I don’t know…not wise…racists…or just plain prejudice for the lack of any good intelligent reasons. So in both historical and present day we have lots of evidence of the harm that prejudice can do to our society and its people yet we still persist in this behavior…I don’t get it.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 16: 23-24 NLT
