Honoring God Reduces Conflict

A Truth to Live – God has created expectations for me.  They begin with a recognition that He is in control and grow with the understanding that He has good in store for all of His creation.  Honoring others and all of His creation when situations get tense always reduces misunderstanding and conflict. 

Scripture – “Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.”  Proverbs 13:10

Prayer – Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me to grow through times of pressure and conflict. Today I am choosing not to focus on my “rights” but instead on the beauty that You have created in everyone around me – especially in those with whom I disagree.  I know that You value them, even if their choices are not in keeping with Your Word. Help me to be a conduit of Your blessing today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
