Today was one of those days… Where the examples in God’s story are correctly described as ordinary people He uses to do His EXTRAORDINARY! In Acts 15 Paul and Barnabas experienced difficult moments in their relationship. At times, they were in unity and others they were in total opposition. Sound familiar?
Relationships, if they’re not healthy, are a touchy subject! Sometimes in our relationships we would rather win the FIGHT instead of winning the WAR! Agreeable solutions are not easily found when unresolved tension already exists! Whether it’s your marriage, children, parents, siblings, family, friends, co-workers or community; each relationship needs to thrive to survive!
1. Talk about our issues
2. Allow for differences of opinions
3. Be QUICK to forgive (you are the one who SUFFERS MOST when you hold onto a grudge!)
HURTING PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE!
*Challenge: Matthew 5:23-24 “So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and GO. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift!”
