If two business partners agree on everything, one of them is not necessary. If a married couple agrees on everything, one of them is not necessary. Get the point? But this truth doesn't just apply to couples or partners. It applies to teams, groups, and even congregations. It applies in any situation where there are people living and working together.
Have you ever been a part of a group trying to make a decision and wondered why everyone can’t all just agree. At that moment think about this life lesson. Decisions, really good decisions, are hammered out of compromise, from considering all points of view. I understand it’s a difficult and sometimes painful process but it’s necessary. After all, if everyone thought like us, others wouldn't be necessary, and that’s not true.
