Dear men… and women.
Dear white… and black.
Dear traditional… and bearded hipster.
Dear Christian… and non-Christian.
Dear straight… and gay.
Dear poor… and rich.
Dear conservative… and liberal.
Dear American… and foreign.
Dear you… and me.
We are all human beings and we are all struggling to make it through life. The last thing we need is to be labeled, judged, and marginalized. We are all equally broken and loved in the eyes of our Creator God.
So, love your neighbor and bridge the divide because when we realize our shared humanity there is very little time left for any of our culturally imposed labels. We need to stop wasting our life building barriers and start using our life to build unity.
Dear you… yes, you.
You are loved.
