“ complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.” Philippians 2:2 (ESV)
“Love is stronger than differences. We all live on the same planet.”-Louise Hay
Above all things,have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”[a] 1 Peter 4:8(NKJV)
We seek love in many places. When we love someone we have so many feelings and emotions for that person. When we fall in love we feel loved, happy, valued, accepted, honored, wanted and protected and we want this person to be in our life all the time and we will reach to the point that we can not live without them. We think of them all the time and we trust them to share our feelings. This person becomes our entire world and we long and desire to be with them. We love them with all our heart, soul and mind. The said love could be for our parents, spouses, family members, children, neighbors, friends, pets, etc.
God has made us and our loved ones completely different people, and the many differences between us can prove frustrating when we are struggling to understand each other. But if we accept the differences between us and learn how to work with them effectively, we can build the close family/ relationships that God wants us and our family members to enjoy.
How do we get “beyond differences” with loved ones?
