We all remember, when we were in high school (or possibly you are currently there) the talk about what this person did or said. I am reminded this happens in all stages of life, and it is so easy to get caught up in. At work we can fall into this trap talking about the boss or other co-workers. It goes on in all types of friend groups, and can even creep into the church if we are not careful. It is so important, if you have an issue or concern with someone, that you go directly to them in love and with positive motives. Don’t make it a topic of conversation with others.
1. Is there anyone God has put on your heart while you read this whom you need to meet with? If so, who?
2. How can you approach them and have a private discussion that will be beneficial and helpful to them?
Challenge: If you do decide to have a private conversation with someone about an issue or concern, I challenge you to put yourself in their shoes first. Ask yourself how you would want to be approached in the same situation if the roles were reversed.
