Some of the greatest experiences in my life come from being friends with people who are not like me!
I am a conservative Christian, and I’m okay with that.
I have friends who are not Christians, and I’m okay with that. They can be my friends even if they don’t believe like I do. They can be my friends even if they NEVER believe like I do. Of course I want them to believe like I do, but they are not projects to be worked on, they are people to be loved and enjoyed and from whom I can learn much.
I love being friends with people who can handle my Christian faith, my conservative politics, my sexuality, my skin color, and my personal preferences and still be comfortable enough in their own skin to simply be who they are in front of me.
How about you? What kind of friends do you have?
