As you know, Friday night our government came within minutes of shutting down due to the lack of a budget or continuing resolution.
After much vigorous discussion and wrangling over issues an agreement was reached.
Commenting on this agreement, President Obama said, “Like any worthwhile compromise, both sides had to make tough decisions and give ground on issues that were important to them.” (see entire article here)
I’d like to know, what do you think about compromise? This is not exclusively a political discussion. This has ramifications for theology, parenting, financial, relational and a host of other contexts too.
What are your best thoughts about compromise?
Do you have non-negotiables; beliefs, etc. you will never back down from?
What happens in a disagreement when the other party won’t compromise? What do you do? Stay and play? Leave? Stay and fight? Became apathetic?
OK… let’s have this conversation…
