It's funny how we have such strong opinions about things that we all admit are fairly trivial in the grand scheme of things. How easy it is to fight over musical tastes or books or movies. And I don't mean disagree, I mean straight up fight. Of course, opinions are one thing, and Faith is another.
So, as it's said, it's always best to know how deep the waters are before diving in. To know what you're about and what you believe before "looking for a fight," as we jokingly said in passing on Sunday. So it's always helpful to be able to arm yourself with friends and knowledge when you go out into a world that isn't exactly made for our ease of mind. As we go forward in the series, I hope we'll be able to equip ourselves with accountability buddies, and the ability to understand what we've always been taught, so that we will be able to gently teach it to others, whether or not they are influenced by it.
