Entitled to my own opinion

We’re all entitled to our own opinion. Right?

But are we really? As Christians, our responsibility is to share God’s love, not our own agenda. We are to further God’s kingdom through our words and actions.

Thats not to say that we can’t stand up for things. Jesus stood up to corruption and turned over tables in the temple.

But I think we should look at why. He didn’t turn over tables because he didn’t believe in tables. Or because the color or shape of the tables offended Him. Or because He didn’t think the tables had rights. He made this loud display because the actions taken place were undermining the purpose of the temple and deterring the worship of God.

I think, as christians, we should look to this example when we chose to take a stand and make some noise. We should ask, is this undermining God’s agenda or mine? Are we demonstrating our personal dislike or standing up for God’s kingdom? Are we bitter because of another person? Are hurt feelings causing our actions?

I think this could help create a way for christians to be heard and God’s purpose be protected, without so many personal issues. If it’s not worth taking a stand by these standards, then let’s just agree to disagree.

But that’s just my opinion.
