"Isms"

Regardless of which ism you choose, we are all guilty of suffering from isms in our lives at one time or another to one degree or another.  Racism is in the news almost daily with all the finger pointing and blaming that goes along with the various stories.  We could also be talking about sexism or classism to name just a couple more isms that have been plaguing humanity for all time.  We think this is something new or we are reverting back to another time in our nation’s history.  History, if we look at it closely with objective eyes shows us that isms are nothing new and they will not be going away anytime soon.  It is human nature to want to be on top of the heap and in so doing someone has to be at the bottom.

There is a way to improve not only our personal isms but also the isms of society.  Look to Jesus as the example in life to follow.  He reached out to those who were at the bottom of the society of the day, women, the lame, the poor, the hungry, the Samaritan, the blind beggar on the side of the road.  It did not matter to him.  In fact he often spoke against the established society for their neglect of those who were marginalized in his time. 

We need to look around as well.  Who are those that society marginalizes right here in this community and our nation?  Are we exercising our isms towards them or are we looking at them with eyes of compassion and love?
