How He Loves Us-David Crowder
Today I got some news that broke my heart. It literally made me so sick to my stomach that I couldn't eat, which is rare.
Last night, my sweet, beautiful friend, who is African American, was the target of unprovoked, unnecessary racist comments. The words were so mean that the girl who told me the story had cried, herself, in the pain that she felt for our mutual friend.
What hit me the most hard, was that someone was capable of coming to the conclusion that my friend was beneath her, and deserving of the verbal abuse simply because of her skin color... I felt it to the bone. I was so upset.
But it wasn't an hour later that I went to sort the mail at The Early Show and an interesting postcard (simply sent to The Early Show--no one in particular) came into my hands... Searching for a name, I saw a sentence that said this, "The hispanics have already ruined Mexico, now they are trying to ruin our country with their drug wars!"
I was blown away. The next sentence said this, "The Hispanics and the Homos are ruining our country and need to be banished!!"
The feeling in my stomach was turned from anger to sadness... How can this world be so ignorant to the fact that people are people, NO MATTER WHAT?! I went to run an errand for a producer and as the cab drove through Times Square, I looked out the window. I saw almost every nationality, ever skin tone, every type of person possible in that ten minute cab ride. And I realized something, and this might be weird, but I realized this:
Every single person out there began the same way. Born from a woman. Fed, bathed, diaper changed... etc.
We all began the same way... A gift from God.
I am a Christian. That means I follow Christ. No denomination. No religion. A faith. I FOLLOW CHRIST, or I try to. And he LOVED. That's what he did. WHY can't the we all understand that there is something to love in EVERY SINGLE PERSON?!
... I can't always understand it either, but it's true.
These are the lyrics to a song by David Crowder in the video above:
Notice that he doesn't say How He loves some of us... It's "oh how he loves us ALL."
