Why People Think You Are Difficult!

Why People Think You Are Difficult!

 

Today, we shall be rounding off our series on forgiveness by discussing the importance of reconciliation. In simple terms, this can be described as the process of repairing a relationship. Sometimes, saying sorry does not mean that you are admitting wrong, but that you value the relationship more than your rights. In your relationship with your colleagues, fiancé, fiancée, spouse, etc., be the individual who pursues peace. Also, when people hurt you, make it easy for them to reconcile, don’t be that individual who people do their best to avoid because of your capacity for contention and debate.

“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.” Romans 12:18. The command here is that we must go the extra mile to be the peace ambassador. This, of course, is not always as easy as it sounds, but we have seen its power and capacity to make you an illumination, a force of good. This simple fact transformed Nelson Mandela into a legend when everyone expected him to be bitter and cause chaos after his release from prison, he charted a new path, extending an arm of fellowship to his oppressors. Love is a powerful conversion machine with the capacity to transform an enemy into a buddy. Make up your mind to love, it is the highest principle on earth.

THINK & ACT: Be the ambassador of peace, reconciling your community, your family, reconciling with your spouse and above all, with God.
