Disagreeing Well (because people are watching)

Davis Williams (you’d think he was paying me for reposting his stuff) put this up today from Francis Schaeffer.

Before a watching world, an observable love in the midst of difference will show a difference between Christians’ differences and other men’s differences.  The world may not understand what the Christians are disagreeing about, but they will very quickly understand the difference of our differences from the world’s differences if they see us having our differences in an open and observable love on a practical level.

~Francis Schaeffer, The Mark of a Christian, The Complete Works of Francis A. Schaeffer, Volume 4, p. 201

True that, Francis, and thanks for pointing us there, David.
