Christians and Jews – Agreement

The following is not an original, but the exact quote and the author credited for the idea escapes me.

Christians and Jews have been fighting for centuries. The Jews believe Jesus Christ was a great person, but was not the Messiah. They believe the Messiah will come someday. The Christians believe Jesus Christ was the Messiah and will come again someday.

How about focusing on agreements versus disagreements, wait for the Messiah to come someday, and ask Him if He has been here before?

This is a roadsign for our journey to a joyful pursuit of happiness.

Understanding

When something doesn’t seem right to us, we need to seek understanding. We ask for additional information, communicate the information we have and why we see differences.

Abruptly stating, “I completely disagree,”¬†or “that makes no sense at all” creates anxiety, not understanding.

We will have discovered building understanding is a required part of our foundation for growing as individuals.
