I Corinthians 9:22 “…I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.”

Here the Apostle Paul was showing that he sought to find common ground with whoever he met…whether Jew, Christian, slave, master, weak, or strong in the faith…in order  to preach the Gospel to all.  Unfortunately as a people, we generally  look for petty differences and disagreements than seek out things that we share.  But if we would take the time to think about it, we have much more in common with each other than we can disagree about.  Finding common ground with one another can also be easier if we ask ourselves this question first…In the eternal scheme of things, does this matter?  Sure, there’s some non-negotiables…but really, the vast majority of stuff we fight about makes no difference at all.
