Dealing with Difference

It’s easy to dismiss someone who is different and holds a different set of values, has radically different political views, embraces a different set of morals and talks about God using very different language. But think about it. That person believes just as strongly as you, feels just as sincerely as you, cares just as deeply as you, is just as committed as you and loves God just as passionately as you. So the next time you encounter someone you can’t understand, think is crazy and are ready to write off – remember God loves that person just as much as God loves you. And, if God loves that person this much, maybe you should too.
