Naked-Man Moleskin:

My great-grandfather came to the US from Germany to sell wine from our family vineyard prior to World War I and was cut off from family and livelihood once the war started.  As a German immigrant at that time, he was reviled by others and tried to farm but faced discrimination and no one would give him water rights. We are a country of immigrants who have accomplished amazing feats but we have a history of discrimination and fear against anyone who is different. Jesus through Paul showed us a better way…on this Independence Day, let’s remember to love our neighbor and love one another in our pursuit of liberty. “For you, my brothers, were called to freedom; only do not let your freedom become an opportunity for the sinful nature (worldliness, selfishness), but through love serve and seek the best for one another. For the whole Law [concerning human relationships] is fulfilled in one precept, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself [that is, you shall have an unselfish concern for others and do things for their benefit].” But if you bite and devour one another [in bickering and strife], watch out that you [along with your entire fellowship] are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk habitually in the [Holy] Spirit [seek Him and be responsive to His guidance], and then you will certainly not carry out the desire of the sinful nature [which responds impulsively without regard for God and His precepts].” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭13‬-‭16‬ ‭AMP‬‬
