Scripture for today: Ephesians 2:14
The movie “Hidden Figures” is about three African American ladies who are working at NASA during the time of the space race. The only restroom for “colored” people was in another building, so one of the ladies is required to walk quite a ways to use the facilities.
The boss (Kevin Costner) notices that she leaves her workplace a lot. He doesn’t know how far she is walking to the restroom.One day he asks her where she goes when she leaves her desk. She explains that she has to walk to another building to use the restroom.
In the next a scene, he has a sledgehammer and is tearing down the sign that says “Colored.” He goes on to explain that no matter the person, urine is the same color.
The Lord sees everyone the same. There are no divisions to the Lord. Jesus loves us all, regardless of the color of our skin or our background. Paul said, “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility…” (Eph. 2:14).
There is no dividing wall to the Lord. He loves us all.
