During Sunday’s service my pastor said something during service that was key:
” When you meet other people, you meet their god(s).”
No matter who you meet, everyone has a god. It’s just a matter of who or what god they serve. And it’s also a matter of if you and that person serve the same god.
I thought this was really key when thinking about who you connect yourself to in relationships and friendships. He also said that you can never have peace in a relationship when the “gods” are at odds with each other.
