But the thing is God created us as unique individuals, all of us mostly with completely different DNA and experiences to go with it. To say that all of your friends have to think like you on this or this subject just doesn't make sense and frankly would be boring. And maybe I am writing this for myself more than anyone as a reminder of this simple fact, but I'm putting it out there anyway.
By having different opinions on life choices or even the small things we can learn from each other. God may just be teaching us a lesson through that differing person that will make us stronger in our choice or realize that maybe another way could be better. But to totally not take the time to listen, to think you know it all, and I am so guilty of this (my husband knows it), doesn't sit well for building the kingdom for Christ.
So I thank-you people from different backgrounds that care about different things that choose different choices than me. I'm learning from you! I'm growing because of you! And you are an awesome thinking individual that I am privileged to encounter in my life.
