As a young woman of African descent who is growing up in America I have come to know that my people have a rich history. We have a rich history not only here in America, but in Africa as well. We contributed to most of what America stands for and we continue to contribute.
I couldn’t help but think about the above when I read Our Daily Bread this morning. The scripture talks about how the children of Israel and how they had had the history of their ancestors as a guide. Then the writer of the message says that we have the bible as a guide for our living. The bible is the guide as Christians as to how we should live our life. We use it as an example as to what pleases God and what doesn’t please Him.
So as a young Christian woman of African descent, I have both the bible and the history of my people to guide me through life. I am thankful for the past becasue without it I wouldn’t be present.
