Have you ever tried justifying or reasoning out yet everything seems to be a poignant contradiction to what the other person is saying? I know I did earlier when I had the opportunity to have coffee with the pastor of my new church here in Bacolod.
I was so passionate over something that I think I overdid my reasoning. Looking back at the discussion earlier, I realized 3 important aspects on sensitive/crucial topics namely:
- Be always open to the points given, it’s as important as your own valid points
- Never assume the outcome can always be good but in the contrary, it becomes an open challenge to think twice on your stand
- Submitting to authority doesn’t necessarily mean agreeing to everything, it’s an opportunity to trust the Lord to work His wonders
I believe that it’s now up to the Lord how He will allow us to lead the congress in the light of disagreement, submission and openness.
