Uncover the mental setbacks

Around the world, the human race acknowledges their history, through speeches, celebrations and activism. Such words as racism, freedom and culture are kept alive for generations to follow. Do we practice the change that is set before us? Or do we complicate the actions of justice?

For decades we are still fighting among ourselves and others. The system is programmed to classify us whether by status or background. Through our own prejudice, we interpret what we see and do. This pick out namesake mentality still exists in our schools, the workforce and of all places leaked into the church. Who overlooks to see if every child is educated fairly, and everyone given their rightful place in society?

The rich and famous who are highly praised on earth, but hardly invest in their country or uplift the poor, prefer to go to the grave with their accolades. Such practices have undermined a generation and continue to. All race is knowledgeable about past and present injustice. The black race which seems to be more alert for any mishaps, have a right to defend when necessary. In this modern age where ignorance exists in the race, more time should be spent correcting the value of self.  

Our vulnerable males continue to take risks through criminal activities. There is a breakdown of concern in education and job opportunities for them. We as mothers, educators, pastors etc have to let them know from adolescence they are the strength of this land and society needs them. Males do you know the dollar bill can multiply legally, but with time and patience you will accomplish your goals?  You are not powerless when the law carries out their duties, or your spouse is not faithful. You see what happens to your brethren daily, don't give up your freedom for the trap of lies.
The unlearned lives in fear of one another's progress, so we fall to jealousy, evil intentions and oppression. Our purpose is designed to share. We must come to terms that we were created equal in God's sight and so we ought to live. The church must not only call for repentance but take the word on the outside as the direction to life. 
As we await to return to what is called normal, its not normal. The reality is we need to get in the NOW MOMENT with righteous living as Romans: 12: 2, states; "and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God."
The world may separate us by status, but we all wake up to issues.  Who has the will power to think and do otherwise? It's a mind thing! Liberate it.

      Marvelous sis well say may God continue to straighten us all physically and spiritually. In this life the biggest Gift we can never get is salvation for our soul. Romam 3:23 say for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God . Roman 6:23 for the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is life though Jesus christ our lord. JOHN 3:16 FOR love the world that he give his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. May God cover each person with his blood. May you days and years to come be filled with laughter,happiness and God mercy

    We don't often see issues of morality discussed in the media, but "Morality Matters". It determines the kind of society we live in, raise children in, and what sort of nation we become in the long run.
    Thank you, Jackie, for sharing your thoughts.
