Interracial couples fighting for a relationship without love only prove that they are ill equipped to love one another when times are tough.
Biblical love demands that we go above and beyond worldly standards, remaining patient and kind to our perceived enemies.
This can be hard when those closest to you remain stubborn and selfish, spewing hatred and condescending remarks about your relationship or significant other.
However, biblical love demands that we endure the suffering.
Will it be harder to be married to another race, and will it be harder for the kids? What I would like to provide here is biblical and practical advice on to how to engage a disapproving family, whether it is your own or your significant other’s, toward the ends of God being glorified, sin mortified, Satan horrified, and all involved edified. The term “enemy” may sound a bit harsh to some, but when a family is opposing you or your relationship simply because of the racial dynamic (while simultaneously making a relationship with a potential spouse more difficult), it’s hard to view them as anything else. Biblical love is the basis for everything I have to say here. The Scriptures call us to love that prevails and changes our current circumstances.
