Getting past conflicting opinions

From “A Christian Science Perspective” in The Christian Science Monitor.

JANUARY 26, 2017 A friend and I went to the movies shortly after the 2016 presidential election in the United States and unwittingly fell into a discussion about politics, a subject generally acknowledged to be off-limits in polite conversation! Before I knew what was happening, the conversation spiraled out of control, and neither of us was very happy with the results.

As we make our way through 2017 (and beyond), we don’t need to let our opinions get the better of our inherent, spiritual tendency to love our friends and others with whom we come into contact. We can let Paul’s words from the Bible inspire the way we speak with all our neighbors: “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth” (I Corinthians 13:4-6, English Standard Version).
