This quote from Rick Warren is very timely. It seems that these days, we can’t have a conversation anymore. If we disagree with someone, we either have to hate them and/or yell at them. I have so many friends that disagree with me on so many things, and that’s ok. I don’t feel the need to yell at them, and vice-versa.
How about we all take a breath today and realize that the people around us are probably much more like us than we think. Oh, and maybe, just maybe, every now and then, they might even be right and we could be wrong. And then let’s all stop yelling.
Here is the text of the quote in case you want it –
Our culture has accepted two huge lies: The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.
