I'm preparing a sermon on conflict and opposition, and someone sent me this, which I think nails it:
whenever we criticise someone, hate someone, demean someone etc, we
disagree with God about that person. God says that they are beautiful,
amazing, worth dying for and remind Him
of Himself. When we pull down, attack, dehumanise, criticise, and fail
to love them, we put ourselves in a position where we disagree with God.
That is not a good place to be.
