This is our precious son.
We have taught him about MLK, and that Americans have not always been nice to brown skinned people.
But, it breaks my heart to think that one day I will have to fully explain to him the complex brokenness of our world.
One day I will have to fully explain our country’s disgraceful history of racial discrimination.
One day I will have to help him understand that we, as a country, have not fully moved beyond these racial issues.
Thankfully, I will also get to point him to the coming day that we read about in Revelation 21.
The day when our loving Father “will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, for the former things will have passed away.”
On that day, God will “make all things new.”
On that day every believer, from every “tribe and people”, will “stand before the throne and before the Lamb”, as one (Revelation 7).
How long, O Lord?
