Stop looking at the outside and start looking at the inside. That sentence right there, wow drop the mic for real. When it comes to us as humans and how we treat each other, it’s heartbreaking to see how we treat one another based on our outside appearance. Not only looking at the color of our skin but how wealthy we may look, the cars we drive, the homes we live in, the clothes we wear, etc. You get the picture. Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream and in part of his speech he made this powerful statement: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr.
I want to take his profound statement one step deeper and say this: “a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the reflection of their heart.” It’s about the Heart…… Their Heart, how they love and care about others. Some of the most loving people do not even have a roof over their head but instead, they have Jesus Christ in their life and they live in a way that truly reflects Him. They are filled with compassion, they know what it’s like to go through trials and tribulations, they know what it’s like to not feel loved, they know what it’s like to go to sleep hungry, just to wake up and do it all over again. Some of the poorest countries in the world have some of the most loving individuals in them. Don’t get me wrong there are many people who are well off who also have big hearts and give out of Love and compassion. I just wanted to give you a visual to look at. We must learn to focus on people’s hearts instead of the outside appearance that’s the bottom line.
At the same time, we must also keep in mind that we too must represent in love as well, especially if you are a follower of Jesus Christ. You have the Holy Spirit dwelling within you and because of that people should be seeing the Heart of our Heavenly Father. And lastly I want to share from Proverbs to encourage you:
Proverbs 27: 19 as a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person.
So I hope this short message will encourage you to not only look deeper into others rather than judge by their appearance and also to be sure that your heart reflects Jesus Christ so others will see a true representation of our Heavenly Father in you. Blessings and Love to you ALL!
