Do you prefer to associate with people who are like you? Yet even within the common faith there are people of good conscience and character who disagree with positions held by your closest friends.
It is easy to gravitate to those like-minded. They validate you by reinforcing positions you already hold. Yet I have things to teach you that you don’t already know and you won’t learn them from those who already agree with you. This may be difficult and demanding, but there is growth in forcing yourself to address another point of view and reconcile differences. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are the children of God.
