Understanding Differences In People

We are all products of our own individual upbringing and experiences so it is completely natural that we will all have differences in opinions on a wide range of issues. The world would be a very different place if we were all the same and it’s the incredible diversity among people throughout the world that makes it such a wonderful place. Unfortunately, many people put up barriers to protect themselves instead of opening themselves up to others. This, in turn, leads to a mistrust of others regardless of color, religion, gender or any other stereotypical excuse given as to why we fear others.

On a global scale, this is often in wars that we see around the world and in an increase in terrorist activities. We all know that these kinds of responses only really fuel further mistrust yet, even in our own immediate environments such as the workplace or even in our local pub, we all tend to congregate in our little groups without giving much thought to others around us.

We all know that these kinds of responses only really fuel further mistrust and even in our own immediate environments, such as a workplace or even in a local place, we all tend to congregate in our little groups without giving much thought to others around us. In Philippians 2:3-4, the scripture tells us that, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others,” meaning we should accept each other’s interests and not of our own selfish ways. Once we accept people’s interests, we will value their overall being.

When we get to learn about others and respect our similarities and our differences, we get to learn so much more about the world and about ourselves and this helps us to grow spiritually, instead of stagnating. It also opens doors to many other opportunities, such as friendships, work prospects, travel possibilities, or a wider understanding of the world in which we live.

So, my dear friends, it is very important that we accept and value each other’s interests and understand the differences in people.

God Bless
