For some of us, this may be difficult. We haven't been taught how to accept responsibility and apologize. We've learned that it's always somebody else's problem. We never would have been this way on our own; somebody else made us do it.

But God's Word says for us to take responsibility. It's sitting in our laps. We need to learn how to say we're sorry.

I'd like to suggest that we do two concrete things. First, acknowledge prejudice in every form, including passively doing nothing, as sin; and second, make some friends.

Let's be willing today to pray, "God, I acknowledge that prejudice is sin. And I know that in my own power I cannot change my thinking. So, Lord, I invite You to work on changing my heart and mind."

After we pray, we must begin to accept opportunities to study, worship and fellowship with people who are different from us. In fact, we must look for them. We must look for opportunities to be part of the multicolored church.

We can get together to worship. We can get together to do Bible studies. We can get together in many different ways! Let's open our church doors and embrace diversity.

I don't want to see God's family color-blind. I want to see us color blessed.

The blessing will come when we recognize prejudice in all its forms as sin. It will happen when we ask God to change our hearts and minds. And it will happen when we get to know one another.

Let's do it! We have so much to gain and nothing but ancient ruins to lose.
