I worked for several years with a single father raising his three children. One day Melvin came into the office where we worked, sat down at my desk and asked, “What color is God?”
Melvin’s young daughter was in a discussion with some classmates at school who insisted that God is a white man. When the girl got home from school, she told her father what the other kids had said and wanted to know the truth. Melvin and his children are black.
After thinking about the question for a few moments, I answered Melvin the best I could: God isn’t any color. The Bible says that God is love.
God is love (1 John 4:7).
