“Deeper than Skin”

August 20, 2019

 2 Samuel 18: 26:  “Then the watchman saw another man running; and the watchman called to the gatekeeper and said, ‘Behold, another man running by himself.’”  As the story tells us, this ‘other man’ was a Cushhite – an Ethiopian – who was obviously black (the meaning of ‘Cush’ is ‘black’).  Yet the watchman did not go with the obvious judgment and say, “Hey, a Cushite, a black guy, is coming this way!”  He did not identify (and judge) the man by his skin.  Would this story play out this way today?  What has happened?
