If there is one thing that COVID-19 Pandemic has taught us is that in a real and palpable sense all people regardless of race or culture or economic status depend on each other. COVID-19 and its aftermath have highlighted for some and reinforced for others the fact that the minimum wage worker in the fast-food eatery, the grocery store single mom cashier, the Amazon and FedEx delivery worker, the non-documented immigrant farmworker, the nurse who preps the patient for surgery and the expert surgeon who performs the surgery, are all collectively and individually dependent on each other for their survival and success. My question to us today is simply this: will we get out of our own comfort zone, be intentional about treating others the way Christ treats us—as his creation made in His image and His likeness? I pray it will not take another pandemic or worse to wake us up! America, one act at a time, one sprinkle of goodwill at a time, one helping hand at a time—let us return to the scene of the crime of man's inhumanity to man and make the first move! It’s a low bar, but we have to begin somewhere! Years ago, Dr. King sounded a prophetic warning to America and the world. Undeniably, sensing his brief time with us he spoke these words: “In a real sense, all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” –Martin Luther King, Jr. I want you to a part of my village! Would you let me into yours? IT TAKES A VILLAGE!
Thanks for stopping by for today’s nugget, IT TAKES A VILLAGE! If there is one thing that COVID-19 Pandemic has taught us is that in a real and palpable sense all people regardless of race or culture or economic status depend on each other. COVID-19 and its aftermath have highlighted for some and reinforced for others the fact that the minimum wage worker in the fast-food eatery, the grocery store single mom cashier, the Amazon and FedEx delivery worker, the non-documented immigrant farmworker, the nurse who preps the patient for surgery and the expert surgeon who performs the surgery, are all collectively and individually dependent on each other for their survival and success. My question today is simply this: will America get out of its comfort zone, open up a much wider tent to cover many more of us, and be intentional about treating others the way Christ treats everyone? I pray it will not take another COVID-19 pandemic or a George Floyd tragedy to wake us up! America, one act at a time, one sprinkle of goodwill at a time, one helping hand at a time—let us return to the scene of the crime of man's inhumanity to man and make the first move!
