ROAD BLOCKS (Day 4 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)
So how did yesterday go? Did you run into any conflicts or tense moments of disagreement? Continue to pray about what peacemaking might look like for you.
The problem with peacemaking is it involves other people, and we have no power over others and their choices. Someone who wants to be disagreeable can remain disagreeable.
However, we do have power over our own words and actions, and we have far more influence than we know. When we bring kindness, respect, creativity, etc. into a discussion we take some of the heat out of it. It’s a bit like someone trying to start a fire, and we don’t show up with any kindling. There may be a bit of heat from what they do, but they won’t be able to start a huge fire and we’ve got cookies. 🙂
