Opinions. Everyone has them. And everyone’s opinion is important, but not necessarily right.
Walking through life places many things before us. As we come upon these things, we have an opportunity to decide how we feel and what we believe.
The world is made up of many people. Each of these individuals have an opinion, a belief. These are what makes the world move forward. Our daily decision is how we will respond to the people placed before us whether it be in a work situation, within our families and friends or complete strangers.
Do we agree or disagree? And is it always the same? Just thinking about it is almost enough to cause an anxiety attack! EEK!!!
So many factors come into play as we interact with people around us. And often, it’s not a question of whether to agree or disagree, but rather, merely to offer encouragement and love.

The conversation and life, will go on, even if we really don’t express our true opinion. You do not always have to say what you think. The sun will still set and rise regardless of how you respond. But, the thing to think about is, how do you make the other person feel in your response?
Because the true joy in life is not whether you are right or wrong or even whether you win or lose… True joy comes from making people smile and laugh and feel important, loved. As you offer those things to someone, you also show them Jesus… and what could be better?
WE ARE CUPS, constantly and quietly being filled… The trick is KNOWING how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out. – Ray Bradbury
