Unity BECAUSE of differences

As Christians we frequently say, “We should be unified despite our differences.” Arthur Sido explains the more appropriate statement should be, “We should be unified because of our differences.”

His recommendation?

“So find some other Christians who disagree with you (not to fight with them or convert them!). Get to know them. Let them get to know you. See what happens. I can virtually guarantee you that your life in the Body of Christ will be richer for it!”

Good advice.
