When reading this passage, it is helpful to remember we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against the evil one. If you focus on who you are really fighting against, it may take some of the hurt, anger and frustration away that you feel towards a person who has offended you. Your fight is not with them personally, but the situation Satan is using to get in the way of what God may be trying to accomplish.
1. What was the last argument or issue you had with another person?
2. Was the disagreement valid or a seed that was planted by Satan and allowed to grow?
Challenge: Take a look at your answers to the questions above. Think about how you could have handled that disagreement differently with the understanding of who you were really fighting against.
