Dark and Precious

Is our skin dark, brown, red, yellow, white or mixed? Many white people want to be as brown as possible to look attractive. Dark skinned people would rather be white. This does not change the fact that we are all valuable. Every person is unique and precious! 

Whether we are considered more or less attractive in human eyes, whether our nose is long or short, whether we are tall or short, young or old, rich or poor: how does that change our value? Is it not more important what kind of people we are, what we do, how we treat each other? Are we shaped by love and grace, peace and joy, patience and kindness, goodness and faithfulness?
