Handling Differences

Be cheerful. Keep things in good repair. Keep your spirits up. Think in harmony. Be agreeable. Do all that, and the God of love and peace will be with you for sure.

                                                                                    2 Corinthians 13:11

Live in harmony. God wants us to get along. Healing comes when we accept each other’s differences. Healing and refreshment bring us together as a community.

Proverbs 17:14 says “The start of a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before it bursts.” 

Arguing over differences of opinion usually does more harm than good. Talking about our differences can become part of the solution, Too often we keep things to ourselves that should be shared to clear the air.

1 Corinthians 1:10 says “You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common.”

God brings to recovery people from all walks of life. He unites them through the Holy Spirit. Disagreement in life will come. The way to combat them is to talk them out.

Progress in rebuilding relationships is usually a result of settling differences. If we all thought and acted the same all the time there would be no ‘Spiritual Growth’

Prayer: Just for today let me get along with those you put on my path. Help me to understand their differences and talk about what bothers me
