I find it rather alarming and disturbing that we still have racial issue and tension could be stoked easily among major races in Malaysia. Why can’t we accept each and everyone of us as we are? Why must we hate each other and hurt each other?
I think…such things happened because we couldn’t… or rather,Â refuse to learn and understand each other’s religion and culture. And therefore, we could not accept one another as we are when deep down, we’re just the same. We’re human of the same species, with different religious views and cultural practices.
Just look at the video above… one Negro… and one Indian man… singing the same song. One may not understand what the other is singing… but one could try to love it and see that the melody that the other man is singing is as beautiful as the song in his own language.
Here’s some food for your thoughts, folks:
What matters to God is our love for Him and our love for each other. Wealth, power and status count for nothing in the kingdom of God. When we truly love our neighbors, we do our part to make the world a better place, and we find our own fulfillment in life.
Have a happy, productive, and fulfilling Monday, folks. Let not the Monday blues gets to you, for there are many others who would do anything for just another day.
Cleffairy: Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1-5)
