The opinions that we have don’t make a difference like the love that we give. (Ann Voskamp, Canadian author)

Everyone seems to have an opinion about any subject you might want to talk about. And most of us hold onto those opinions very tightly. Thus, the expression, opinionated, which usually is not a compliment. Even when our personal ideas are correct, they will not likely have as positive an effect on our hearers as a sincere demonstration of concern and love.

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions (Proverbs 18:2).

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love (Ephesians 4:2).
