Listening to our Own Echoes
If we only talk with those who sound like us how will we hear?
If we only look at those who look like us how will we see?
If we only touch those who touch like us how will we feel?
Self-sorting niches, groups, societies, churches, teams, politics, schools, religions, ideologies are a mixed blessing. However unpleasant it might be, a good dose of pluralism is indispensable for maturity.
The Good Samaritan not only helped someone else... he helped himself.
