“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
This picture and other pictures like this remind me of when I was a child. I lived in a nice house that my Parents owns and loved it. I had kids to play with that were my favorite kids to play with outside of my favorite cousins growing up. So to me they were like an extended family.
All of my friends were church goers and came from families that prayed and stayed in prayer. Our parents all worked, Grandmothers were the best cooks we knew. And we as kids all liked the same things to play with and the same types of games too. I saw my friends for who they were and not the color thing I just thought they looked like their parents and it was not a racial thing. My friends did too.
We enjoyed looking at the clouds and would notice on a beautiful summers day how the clouds would have different shapes. Like some would look like people, dogs, or a foot. Stuff like that. We made mud pies for our doll babies, had “pretend husbands” that were actually the brothers to some of the girls I played with. My friends came from all back rounds of color , African-American, Polish, Puerto Rican, Asian, Mexican and Jamaican. All in a middle class neighborhood. Nothing that is stereotypical, just people living together none of the “you people “nonsense then when we were little.
But then as were got older, like around 7 years old…things changed. It was something that my Polish friend and I didn’t see coming. Her grandmother (who was different from the other grandmothers) moved in with her. And I could hear on a summer’s day of her complaining about me playing with her while the window was open. “She shouldn’t be out there with that child….” along with some other things. I just didn’t want to believe she was talking about me. Because those things she was saying I was was an evil lie. This woman didnt know me from Adam as the expression goes.
I told my Mom about it, and it was not good. I think my Mom, when she got the chance let them know how she felt about it. But I was never able to play with my friend again. Nor was she to play with the rest of the kids who were not white. We both cried because of that, it was awful. We didn’t understand how you can do something like that to us. She lived right next door to us, and we would see each other more than the other kids.
Racial division is something that is pure evil. It is hate with no locgical GODLY reason to back it up. It keeps people from living peacefully with each other as how GOD wants us to do. What is the point in it? To keep people from living peacably with each other. A lot of evil is done from this, as what I am saying right now as to what happened to my friend and me.
Romans 12:17-1921st Century King James Version (KJ21)
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Kids learn from all of this. Now I don’t know how this has affected my friend right now or how she is living her life. I don’t know if she passed this on to her children or not. But I do know that what ever was told to her about playing with other kids that are not like her just because they told her we are all bad….may be something she got used to and just dealt with it.
I know I did not change what is in me. I wanted always as far back as I could remember to be like JESUS. Have a pure love in my heart which then give you an inner sincere peace.
John 14:27 KJV
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

When children are born, they are not thinking about color like the adults do. Yeah as a child they do see that there are people who look different. But what they are thinking about is someone to play with who is small like they are. Color is something that elders teach the kids for what ever reason they assume is right. But it is wrong. For all hate is influenced by satan. GOD IS LOVE!!!! Satan comes to steal your joy as he did for me and the friendship of my friend as a child.
We all need to teach our kids the ways of the LORD our GOD and not the evil ways of the world. For it is destructive, leading all humans in to the pit of hell if we are not careful.
There is no such thing as race. No such thing as one being superior to the other simply because they do not look like you. Dont listen to the devil and then pass this lie on to your children. They will suffer for it and live in confusion for the rest of their lives. Simply hating all people eventually, becasue they will not love themselves too.
Matthew 22:36-40King James Version (KJV)
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
When we raise our children to hate we are committing a sin. And then we are teaching our children to sin as well….leading on to keeping this disease of hate going. Once we all understand what GODs way is and follow it we all will be truly happier. For the devil lies to us to blind us from the truth of GOD. Stay in pray and stay close to GOD and HIS beloved son. For it is GODS heaven we want to live in, to be able to see GOD ever so lovingly smiling upon us with HIS son JESUS on HIS right hand side smiling upon us all too .
Praise and glory be to you dear beloved FATHER GOD at all times now and forever more and to all of eternity long. Thank you FATHER GOD for our savior JESUS Christ!
May you all have a blessed day and from the reading of this post, and for sharing it to others as well.
