BE LIKE MR. ROGERS

“In 1969, when black citizens in the United States were not permitted to swim in community pools along side white people, Fred Rogers brought a black police officer to his television show and invited him to cool his feet with him in a small, plastic wading pool. Mr. Rogers then helped Officer Clemmons to dry his feet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Remind you of anyone? ⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“After dinner, Jesus poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.” (John 13:4-5) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mr. Rogers never openly preached on his show, despite being an ordained Presbyterian minister. Yet he preached volumes in this simple act of love.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In a world seemingly filled with hatred, where you can be anything, be a Mr. Rogers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
