Do Black Lives Matter?

Do Black Lives Matter?

Posted by Kenny Vaughan on 3rd Jul 2020

This was way too important to me to throw up a black screen for a day.

The truth is that each life matters to God, because he created each life -- but no one life matters more than another.

We are all sinners. God loves the sinner, not the sin.

The whole world can say to you your life doesn’t matter and treat you as if it doesn’t. That doesn’t make your life not matter.

The whole world can say to you and treat you like your life matters, but that doesn’t make your life matter.

What makes your life matter is living a loving life. How people treat you says nothing about you. How you treat people says everything about you.

How you feel about how the people around you treat you says nothing about you. How the people around you feel about how you treat them says everything about you.

Truth matters.

Had my family been enslaved, the truth is, I know that the greatest battle of my life would be to not hate anyone who in any way, shape, form or fashion resembled those who enslaved my family.

So, any time I come in contact with anyone of any color, whatsoever, I consider myself their servant, and I go out of my way to make sure they know I do consider that their life matters.

Fear sees life outside in. Love sees life inside out.

Truth matters and because of Jesus, and his love for us, our lives can matter.

He calls us to take up our cross and follow him.

He calls us to love like he loved; only love can drive out hate and fear.

Because of Jesus, we – all of us -- are family.

Romans 3:23-24 (NIV)

23 …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Psalm 139:13-14

For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Laus Deo,
