Our Superintendent of our Ministry Network, Les Welk, recently twittered, “If there is evidence of persistent conflict and problems that arise and surround a particular person, consider the common denominator.”
I think this is a valuable lesson for our lives. If you are constantly mad at people and have unresolved conflict often in your life, the problem might actually be…YOU! The Bible says in Romans 12:18 – If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
That’s our goal as Christians. Drama, conflict, and unforgiveness is inevitable, but needs to be dealt with quickly with the agenda of irradicating it out of our lives. It’s the hardest thing to do, but sometimes you just have to “anty up” and have the difficult conversations as quickly as you can. Otherwise you can look around and all of a sudden have a heart full of unresolved JUNK!
If that’s you…it’s time to clean house. Deal with your issues and when you put your head on the pillow at night, you’ll be able to rest in the peace of God. Good luck!
