Bill Wilkinson on Reconciliation.
Here is what he said before Sunday:
“I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we...can we all get along?”
Many of you may remember those words of Rodney King during the Los Angeles riots of 1992. This lasted six days, resulted in 63 deaths, over 2300 injured, and required the US Army and Marine Corps to restore order. The people were rioting because of the acquittal of the police officers that had severely beaten Rodney King. America saw that beating on video tape. What’s amazing is that in the midst of the rioting here was Rodney, the man who had been beaten, on national TV pleading for people to get along, to essentially forgive what had been done to him.
Let’s take a look at God's view of “getting along” this week as we open His word. His word may shed some light on how we can better “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39, Gal 5:14).
See you on Sunday, and let’s see if we can all get along on the car ride to church.
