AGREE to disagree!
Have you ever loved someone but didn't like them at a moment in time? You do realize that the two things can be true? I might love my siblings, but I don't always like them. I don't agree with the way they may handle a certain situation or how they spoke to me during a conversation. The same goes with how they feel about me. They love me, but they don't like me at times. I know that my kids love me, but they don't always like me. As a matter of fact, they hate when I do social media stuff. Don't let me be out of town and making a video of what I am doing or where I am currently at. One of them will text and/or message me with lightning speed and correct my behavior. Now it's up to me if I want to get offended and up in arms or if I want to make the adjustment. Now for me, I try to make the adjustment, but sometimes I forget and go back to my old ways of doing things. Doesn't necessarily mean I am wrong, or they are wrong, it just means that I am human.
There is a story in the bible about two sisters named Martha and Mary. You can find the text in Luke 10:38-42. Jesus and his team are visiting their home and both of them react differently. Now who’s to say whose reaction is right and whose is wrong? Martha is working diligently to make sure everything is in order while they visit. She wants to make sure they feel welcomed and that they are fed and able to rest. She is cooking, cleaning, and feels rushed because she is doing it all by herself. Mary decides to sit at the feet of Jesus and listen while he imparts his vision. Does that make Mary wrong because she wasn't helping Martha clean? I say no. But what do you say? I can be like Martha sometimes; I am so busy with everything that I forget to sit down and pause for a moment. My spirit is trying to connect with me, but there is too much busyness. At that moment, Martha was operating acts of service as her love language, but she forgot to do it out of love and not irritation. Mary was operating in her love language of quality time.
There is no right or wrong answer to the above situation. We all handle things differently. Can we improve sometimes? Most definitely, but that has to be on our time and in our own effort. We have to stop pointing the finger at people when we feel they are doing something wrong, or differently than the way we do it. We can offer suggestions if the person is willing to listen but that is all we can do. Let us continue to be the example to this world. As we grow and evolve, we will see the world and people in it in a different light. Let us look to the good of those people and not focus on all the negatives. None of us are perfect, but we can all strive to be better each day.
Sending you love, light and positive vibes,
