tear down this wall!

"... God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear Him and do what is right." Acts10:34-35

Over twenty years and President Reagan's words still echo in my ears, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"  And in due time, the massive Berlin Wall came tumbling down. It was feared President Reagan's words were too abrasive, but it was the right thing to say. Millions trapped behind the wall of communist oppression were finally provided freedom and opportunity for new life.

As believers, we have the opportunity to help free others and to cheer as they gain new life in Christ. When we love as Christ loves us, we put down walls of selfish, judging and prejudice attitudes.  Such attitudes erect a wall within and prevent the love of God from flowing out to others in need.

Father, help me not to show favoritism by loving just the easy ones in my path.  Give me Your strength, boldness and heart to genuinely share Your love and goodness to everyone.

have a bold-filled day!
