When you continually graze on negative thoughts, feelings, words, and images, you crowd joy out of your life. Seeing people who disagree with you as a continual threat is a powerful way to keep yourself stressed out.
Raise your eyes beyond life’s haze of delays and gaze on things that amaze. Gaze at the goodness of God. Biblical Christianity is to continually gaze at the living Jesus, not to occasionally glance at Him. Christ-followers are called to align with the living Jesus and not with our own opinions, feelings, or political preferences.
When it comes to other people’s opinions, it’s much easier to glance and disregard them, than it is to ponder and understanding them. Perhaps God wants you to show kindness and love to people you disagree with, instead of trying to prove them wrong.
Overcome conflict with kindness, compassion, and humility. Pride isn’t a God-given right — just the opposite. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
If you’ll be sincerely reflective about other people’s perspective, you may not agree, but you’ll understand them better. Love listens.

Thru the eyes
Race was invented as an excuse
For human trafficking and other abuse.
It has no good use.
