    Godly Moment Captured in the Midst of McKinney Protests [Video]

    This past Friday, tension was at an all time high in McKinney, Texas, as opposing protestors took to the streets to voice their concerns over police brutality.

    While many of the protestors went back and forth about the differences that separated them, there were two protestors who took a more Godly approach (skip to 3:17):

    This is pretty incredible. Here you have two men with opposing views, coming together in the middle of a heated protest, to hold hands in prayer. Instead of letting their anger get the best of them, they chose to focus on what unites them: God. This may seem like a small act, but it’s deserving of attention. One of the hardest things to do in life, is to love your enemies. It’s much easier to hate and to be angry with them. But the Bible calls on us to love, even those who are against us.

    But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27-28).

    This doesn’t mean that you have to agree with everyone. Not at all. It’s okay to have different opinions. It’s okay to be passionate about something. It’s okay to disagree. However, when that passion turns into violence and anger towards an individual, that’s when it becomes a problem. In spite of our differences, we are all children of God and that’s what unites us. If everyone could come together in unity, like the two men in this video, imagine how peaceful this world would be.

     

    “You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 43-44).
