I am trying to listen carefully to the stories of Black Lives Matter instead of turning away, to listen instead of dismissing them as “one-0ffs” not happening in my backyard, or just too painful to hear. And as I listen, what can I say? It is far more than the heart can bear.
Everyone matters in God’s eyes. Our names are engraved in the very palms of His hands. And I want to shout from the roof tops that anyone of any race, creed or color who thinks that they don’t matter – you are infinitely precious in God’s eyes. YOU MATTER. And it is up to us as believers to make sure everyone knows it.
