Sometimes the conversation we don’t have is more important than the conversation we do have. It is not every time someone demands to speak to us that we should adhere. I have seen in my life and most importantly recently, how other people’s desires are not always inclined to meet with yours. Pleasing God is most important and I so often in the past was concerned about others feelings before God.
Of recent I have been learning to put God first and others way lower than him. What God says is the most important opinion I need. It’s the only opinion I need. When we start allowing others to dictate to us over God, we run into a problem.
