To Love Despite our Differences

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “agree.” We would love to have you join us.

Jesus sat around the table the night before his crucifixion and death. Jesus washed their feet. He broke bread with all of them. He even sat with Judas and Peter. Judas would betray him. Peter would deny him.

The world is a place where we disagree sometimes with one another. God calls us to agree to disagree. To put aside our disagreements and simply listen to one another. For in listening we might learn and grow to understand the other side of an argument.Β In opening my heart, mind and soul, I’ve been molded into a woman who continually wants to learn from those that are different than her; who disagree with her.

The beautiful tapestry of the body of Christ is that we are all unique. The world would be a pretty boring place if we all looked and sounded and agreed the same. In our individuality, God simply calls us to put aside our differences; to simply love one another.
