  1. Love this.  It doesn’t remove our responsibility to take stands against certain things.  The old adage, “you can’t love gardening if you don’t hate weeds” comes to mind.

    Having said that, I have been dissatisfied with myself too often for being the guy who seems to be against everything that doesn’t perfectly align with my version of the “way things ought to be”.

  2. I see more and more as a pastor that my time is better spent defining what I’m for, and challenging my church to do the same. When it’s obvious what we’re for, it’s also generally easy to know what we’re against. It just doesn’t come out near as grumpy!

  3. Thanks for this nugget of truth.

    We physically tried out this truth in the past week during a backpacking trip.

  4. “The footing is surest where the fewest walk.”  This is encouraging.  Makes me want to continue to walk in conviction of what I know is right despite not having the crowd along with me all the time.
