Small differences, big fights

There are a dozen Dutch NGOs that help the refugees in the camps in Moria. Strangely enough they are fighting big time among themselves.

There are a lot of different flavors of Christianity. All want to share Jesus’ message. Strangely enough they are often fighting each other tooth and nail.

The biggest fights are often between people who agree on the big issues. They quickly run into the infinite amount of little issues to disagree on. Followed by someone blowing these little issues out of proportions.

What we need is to stop, to walk back to the common ground and spend time there together.

Not because it will change our differences, but because it will allow us to see how insignificant our differences really are.
