NOTE
My bible study notes and blogs aren’t, of course, exhaustive in thought or scripture. They are here to add to or get you started in conversation or your own bible studies.
As you may already know, a conversation topic or scripture out of context isn’t always fully applicable, but I hope you’re able to read something here that helps strengthen and encourage you and your relationships along as add to your faith.

A FEW FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURES FOR THE BLOG, “THE PROBLEM WITH #BLACKLIVESMATTER”

Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins [it overlooks unkindness and unselfishly seeks the best for others]… 1 Pet 4:8

Rejoice with those who rejoice [sharing others’ joy], and weep with those who weep [sharing others’ grief]. Romans 12:15

…cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow… Isaiah 1:16,17

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. Galatians 5:13

…and walk continually in love [that is, value one another-practice empathy and compassion, unselfishly seeking the best for others], just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God [slain for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance. Ephesians 5:2

…love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love on another. By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you have love and unselfish concern for one another. John 13:34-35

I…appeal to you to live a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called [that is, to live a life that exhibits godly character, moral courage, personal integrity, and mature behavior-a life that expresses gratitude to God for your salvation], …with all humility [forsaking self-righteousness], and gentleness [maintaining self-control], with patience, bearing with one another in [unselfish] love… Ephesians 4:2

…if My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
