I have been pretty involved in a conversation in the comments of MckMama's post from yesterday. Definitely not about surface things. Lots of talk about Satan, our freewill, and claiming responsibility. It has been a particularly good conversation for me. It has allowed me to think about what I believe and share it with others. These types of conversations are good for us. I think we need to be able to explain to others what we believe. I had a professor in college who told me "You don't truly understand a concept until you can teach it to others." I know some people are not great at instructing others, but you catch her idea. I think we have to be able to make our faith tangible.
I certainly don't even come close to knowing all the answers, but these conversations help me grow and assess where I stand.
I confess I used to be a very black and white person. I have worked very hard of the last 5-6 years to change that. There are certainly things that I am still black and white about (absolute truth etc) but I am also less defensive and willing to discuss with others.
I hope today has found you in a place where you can discuss your differences with others-whether that be your spouse, friend, or someone on the internet whose face you don't know. We have much to gain from listening to others.
