IS IT PREJUDICE OR PROOF?

John 4:9 (NKJV)

Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.

Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Urban, Rural, Ghetto, Northern, Southern, Republican, Democrat, Elderly, Millennial…

Race, Geography, Education, Socio-Economic Status, etc., etc., etc.,

There are negative stereotypes about any group you could mention.

I don’t know what’s worse!


Those who judge and group people by these negative stereotypes…

Or,

Those whose behavior actually confirms those stereotypes to be true!


Unfortunately, there are those who seem determined to prove some of these prejudices are valid through their behavior. But, they by far never represent the entire group.


Stop it!


Stop judging entire groups based on these stereotypes.

Stop confirming these stereotypes with negative behavior.

Stop putting a spin on acceptable behavior transforming it into a ‘negative’ stereotype.

Remember how the disciple Nathanael unfairly grouped Jesus and those from His town when he first heard about Him…

John 1:45-46 (NKJV)

45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”

Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

Could anything good come out of Nazareth?

Yes!

BE BLESSTIFIED!
