My Opinion

I have an opinion, and an understanding of life.  As I look at this world I have come to a belief of how God designed the world to be, and what he desires for us – and for me. This is something that I’ve wrestled with and am continually wrestling with. It is an opinion that, upon its sharing, might cause people to look at me in disgust as an uncaring person, but that is not my aim.

I am to love, as Christ loved, in all that I do. 

To simply share this opinion with the world, without regard for the individual and for the sake of sharing alone, would be uncaring. To jump into to the debate for the sake of debating would be unloving. To share truth without love negates the purpose of that truth. And so I will share my opinion when I am face to face with an individual who understands my heart; when I’m across the way from a friend who knows I’ve wrestled with my understanding of life to come to such a point.

I will not forsake truth for the sake of love, but I will not forsake love as I share my understanding of truth either.  I will share truth with love, and I will love with the truth.

*If you want to sit across the way and hear my opinions, simply ask…*
