Have you ever given much thought to how you deal with the people in your life that have views different than you?
I got a letter from someone who has been promoting my training seminars and materials for years. She has talked many times about how they have helped her reach success, made her more money, and grown her business faster. And many more times she has testified about how they have done the same thing for thousands of others in her company.
She had recently read my book Accept Your Abundance. She wrote to tell me that she could no longer ever endorse anything I have done.
What caused the abrupt turnaround?
After reading the book, she decided I was anti-Christian. So she feels she would be sending a double message, because she also leads two prayer calls a week. I sent her a reply expressing my respect and best wishes for her, and letting her know that I certainly don’t want her recommending my stuff if she can’t do so without reservation. And of course also pointed out that I am a Christian myself.
Obviously we have quite different interpretations of what that means. But it is interesting to me how she reacted initially.
Let’s suppose I really was anti-Christian. Would that negate the value and truth in what I had taught her and her people for all those years? Would the fact that I had an opposing view on creation mean that I was “wrong” about everything else?
How do you react when others around you have an opposing view on things? How do you deal with them, and how does it affect your responses in other areas? Think about that, and please share your thoughts below.
