So Many Opinions

Reflect

There will always be people with different opinions—in politics, Church, even in families. Jesus calls us to respect each other despite our differences.


Pray

God of right understanding,
everyone has their own ideas
and even when we disagree
we are all part of your family.
Help me see past the opinion
to the person who holds it
and open my ears to truly listen
to their point of view.

Help me treat others with respect
even when their ideas conflict with mine.
Let my words build people up and bring us together,
and never tear others down or drive us apart.
Amen.


Act

Avoid automatically countering other people’s opinions today. Listen to what the other person has to say and try to understand it before coming up with a reply.

PRAYER REQUEST: Hi! Again someone wishes bad for us and is trying to sue us. We don even know of any layer to support us. Please pray for our protection always from people like this whom takes advantage of us, and from now on let us keep in good ties with supportive friends and newer ones. Thanks! Please Pray. R.C.F.
