“Our maturity will be judged by how well we are able to agree to disagree and yet continue to love one another and to cherish one another and seek the greater good of the other.”
- Desmond Tutu
Bishop Tutu always has a way of helping us get back to reality. back to the place we need to be.
so, how well do you do this?
how well can you continue to LOVE and cherish & seek good for the person who you drastically disagree with?
because what i see most is people not being able to handle it when other people disagree with them. if someone has a different ideology or different belief about something peeps get all bent out of shape. they can't continue to love that person and want good for them.
what i see is that people are judged by how much they can agree with the one doing the judging.
what i see is people's value being based on how little they disagree with your viewpoint.
it's crazy to me that so many people can seem to hate people because of their disagreements.
i think the Bishop is right. our maturity is judged by this. and i don't think most of us are scoring too high on the maturity ranking.
