Jack was born in Cairo, Georgia in 1919 to a family of sharecroppers. His mother single-handedly raised Jack and her 4 other children.
They encountered prejudice as the only black family on their block, but it only strengthened their resolve.
#42 Jackie Robinson experienced prejudice throughout his baseball career—becoming the first player to break the Major League color barrier that segregated the sport for over 50 years.
Unfortunately prejudice is something people, even Christians, still struggle with today.
We saw last time prejudice usurps the glory of God. Because who is the glory of God? Jesus Christ. And Jesus was not a respecter of persons.
He didn’t discriminate based on age, race, gender or social status. In fact he intentionally broke down those barriers.
Not only does prejudice usurp God’s glory. Now James shows us that prejudice opposes God.
