What makes our country unique? One stand out characteristic is that our nation is founded on the belief that all persons are created equal. Are we living that truth? No. But at least that is the standard to which we strive. Many countries don’t even try. Why should they if they don’t believe that God is the giver of life, and therefore each has value? Stratifying people by wealth, color, privilege, or any other criteria is OK. Until you see that each human breathes because they are God created, God valued. That’s the source of equality.
We still have a long way to go in our nation, our cities, our families. But its God’s standard and He’s ready to help us live it.
