Genesis 8:22 NIV

"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease".

I still don't understand why we have to continue to point out what race everyone is. Aren't we all "Christians" ? Moses Chung is a Christian, whether he is Korean, Black, White, etc. Should make no difference.
I work in sales in the New York metro area, and I have customers. Whether they are Jewish, Black, Peruvian, Cuban, Dominican, Indian, Jamaican, British, Irish, etc, what difference does it make. They are still my customers. At our Synod and Classis we are all Christians. Should we refer to George as Dutch or white every time we talk about him? Or can he just be George, a brother in Christ.

There was a sermon I heard once that stated that if you have food clothing and shelter you are rich. This was profound for me because I never considered myself rich. There was always a friend or neighbor or associate that had a lot more than I did so rich did not apply to me. I came to realize that yes I am rich even though I struggled to pay Christian school tuition for my kids, and didn't have an investment portfolio or live in a McMansion. The Lord has richly blessed me and requires me to love others and share what I have. If I don't have an attitude of love and therefore giving, I am indeed greedy. It is not all about me, but about others.
