It’s our human nature to experience conflict from time to time, but one thing I’ve noticed in my years of evangelism is that if we keep our eyes fixed on our goal of sharing Jesus, we are less likely to have conflict over small, inconsequential matters, or what I like to call “non-issues.”

As believers, our goal should be, “how can I imitate Christ? How can I share about Jesus with the people who have not heard of Him?”

Mark 16:15 says, “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News Gospel to the whole creation!” This means we’re called to share the Good News—not bicker with our neighbors over small matters.

Today, I challenge you to put aside differences you may feel and talk to someone you ordinarily wouldn’t about Jesus Christ.

Remember that Jesus opened his arms to everyone. As you go about your day, keep yourself focused on this eternal goal.
