SUMMARY: Studies, and probably in your own experience, have shown that there is a political divide between younger and older generations of Christians. Being disappointed without being disrespectful, recognizing that history repeats itself and taking the time to pause and critique our own motivations are three ways we can bridge the gap between the younger and older generations.
KEY QUOTE: “Immaturity is thinking your parents or grandparents are totally wrong about everything in politics and are wholly driven by sin-born blind spots. Maturity is admitting you are just as prone to blind spots yourself, even if they are different ones. Maturity is recognizing you are just as sinful yourself, and both of you have a lot of growing to do in the direction of Christlikeness.”
