You can win an argument while losing the relationship at the same time. This is what happens when the issues on the table matter more to us than the people around the table. The need for control and our desire to simply be right can drastically influence our approach to how we address the critical issues this world faces. Far too often, we’ve taken things that are true and made them about us.
As long as we continue to focus on the issues and ignore what’s at the center, nothing will ever change. The madness of this world isn’t going to be solved because we simply won an argument. We’ve got to carve out a time and space where we can silence the noise and reflect on God’s truth and the impact it should have on our life and relationships. We must surrender what we know to be true to Him who is the Truth.
