If we are honest, there are some people we would like to put in their place. Or, as we want to say, “They have gotten out of their lane.” Before we say something we regret or do something we must live with, it is essential to understand the relationship from the other person’s perspective.
Why are they making things so difficult? What is going on that is causing them to act out? What is life like from their perspective?
How do we deal with difficult people? The same way we deal with our difficulty. We show grace and humility. Humility helps us see the brokenness in others. Grace gives room for God to work through the brokenness. Grace and humility will put the caring into confronting.
Who do you need to show grace and humility to today?
