Color does not grant supremacy

I think of the Caribbean and Africa and I think of the history of white supremacy in the world. White skin privilege is still alive. When people’s skin give them privileges they would not have if they were not white something is not right. Wealth and prosperity is God’s will for my life. I thank God that I have my wealth. May my wealth increase or stay the same. I like being upper middle class. I love my house but I’d love to be like Oprah and be rich. I feel like money is Godly. Others feel poor people are more blessed. I disagree with that. I don’t believe in the Gospel of poverty or that taking an oath of poverty to become a nun or Christ follower makes any sense. My God is the God of infinite worth and unfathomable riches in Christ Jesus, Amen.
