“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon………..
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”- Matthew 6:24-34
The National Urban League released their annual report: “State of Black America”, where they alleged that “Blacks have fallen behind in their efforts to reach parity with Whites in several key areas since 2010”.
This reminds me of when I was a kid, many Black Americans equated “success” with living in a predominantly White community or owning material things that they perceived Whites owned.
Some call it “keeping up with the Jones”.
My response to the Urban League, therefore, is that Black Americans should not be aspiring to be reach parity with White Americans, making White Leftist Americans their idols or “masters” (see the above Scriptures).
Instead, Black Americans should be aspiring to be Christlike and submit ourselves to Biblical principles of finances, individual responsibility, strong families, and dependence upon God.
God will bless our obedience to Him, but He will not bless the fantasy or illusion of our trying to obey the racist and shallow concepts of the Urban League.
It is also quite ironic that the Urban League alleges that Blacks are no “on par” with the economic gains of white Americans, even as this racist organization advocates anti-market policies which contribute to the economic gaps they bemoan (i.e., Minimum Wages, Davis-Bacon Act, Prevailing Wages, Project Labor Agreements, and the attack on Coal)
