People have been described as black, red, white, yellow and a vast array of shades and hues. Why do we have different colored people? Where do the different races come from?
The different colors in man are no different than the different colors in dogs or cats. We also see different colors in flowers and fruits.
When I was young all the tomatoes or watermelons were the same color. They were all red. Yet today we have tomatoes that are red, yellow, orange, purple and also in different shades. Did these tomatoes come from outer space? Of course not!
The potential for varietyin color and size is inherent in all living things and man is no exception. No wonder that the Bible states in Acts 17:26 (GNT) “From one human being he created all races of people....”
So all races and colors come from one original couple; Adam and Eve! Do you know what color was the skin of Adam and Eve? Werethey white, black, yellow, red? Nobody knows!
There is no prejudice when it comes to color with God, as he endowed man with the ability to produce a wide variety of color. Do we not appreciate the vast variety of colors in flowers? Then why we should we not also appreciate the vast array of colors and beauty in mankind?
Notice what He states at Acts 10:35 (ASV) “but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is acceptable to him.” God has no prejudice and so why should we?
Whatever our color, we have a common origin, a common Father and so we are one family with a beautiful array of shades and colors. Let us all appreciate the different colors and races of mankind and praise the Almighty God for the eye-pleasing variety.
