Very challenged by the following as I embark on the Christmas book:
How do you deal with relational disappointments?
Do you blame, deny, run away, avoid, threaten and manipulate?
Or do you speak the truth, exhibit patience, approach people gently, ask for and grant forgiveness, overlook minor offenses, encourage and honor others?
Let's admit these questions touch us where we live from day to day. True Christian maturity does not get any more practical and concrete!
Told!!! I think if I went away with just these thoughts from the book, and actioned them, I'd have gained so much. Only can do with God's grace and help because those qualities are not our default setting as we are naturally prickly, defensive and ready to hold grudges.
