Two Sides of a Coin
A friend and I often discuss about our faith. She is Protestant, and I am Catholic.
Whenever we discuss our differences, I see each of us looking at opposite sides of a coin. She is appreciating the beauty of her side, as I acknowledge the refinements on my side. The same coin that we are looking at from different sides can “buy” the same thing we want. In this case, salvation through Jesus Christ.
In much the same way, we are both walking our journey in life taking different routes but the destination is the same. (Could it be that some routes take a shorter distance?)
I believe that only in looking at our differences this way can we really appreciate each other’s faith, respect each other’s beliefs, and be able to simply agree to disagree.
After all, the focus is really Jesus.
