July 17 – Black or White

In a strange twist, Rachel Dolezal resigned last month as the president of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People. She did so after a furor over her racial identity, when her parents revealed that she has been posing as black when she is actually white. The uproar involved not only racial authenticity, but professional honesty. Many people hide behind false faces and some are never discovered, at least in this world. But Paul the Apostle warned, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man (or woman) sows that he will also reap.” We may fool other people, but we cannot fool God. He knows all our secrets. The Psalmist who declared, ”O Lord, You have searched me and known me…You perceive my thoughts …You are familiar with all my ways.” Adam and Eve tried to fool God. They failed.
