My natural inclination is to seek 100% agreement and to surround myself with people who are basically bobble-headed. That is the easy way. We can convince ourselves that we are all always right about everything if we agree.
But all that bobble-nodding does not help me to see beyond myself and if all I can see is me, I will certainly miss God most of the time.
I applaud these girls who are speaking their truth in their own voices. Do I anticipate that over time and through experience their truth will deepen — strengthening and sharpening in some places, rounding out and softening in others? Sure. Do I agree with all their jots and points and declarations? Nope. But I love their unwillingness to sit still and thoughtless. I love what I might describe as a rather significant dose of umption in their gumption.
Thanks, Ali, for sharing this video on Facebook. I love your uption, too.
