Being easily offended or defensive when someone has a different opinion that does not support our views is a negative response that hinders emotional maturity.
Allowing respectful diverse view points into our thinking helps us grow and gain insight from different perspectives. Limiting ourselves to ideas only from people who agree with us can inhibit or destroy significant relationships.
Assuming that we are being rejected if others do not perform as we desire or show support in our endeavors results in unhealthy thought processes.
If we work to communicate with one another with kindness, patience, and understanding, we can cultivate ways to operate in love and empathy, opening opportunities for growth and strong relationships that impact us personally, spiritually and professionally.
Might it be possible that God intended diversity to mature and teach us how to love in a way that transforms us as well as others?
I believe it is worth pondering…
