[1: 1,926 of 10,000] WOEAIHF? Day 20 of 42

WOEAIHF is Rick Warren’s “What On Earth Am I Here For?” book.

Day 20: Restoring broken fellowship

“Sometimes we need to avoid conflict, sometimes we need to create it, and sometimes we need to resolve it. That’s why we must pray for the Holy Spirit’s continual guidance. Discussions and debates may continue but do it in a spirit of harmony.”

This chapter shared amazing ways to restore relationship and the first one I believe is the most important:

  1. Talk to God before talking to the person.
  2. Always take the initiative.
  3. Sympathize with their feelings.
  4. Confess your part of the conflict.
  5. Attack the problem, not the person.
  6. Cooperate as much as possible.
  7. Emphasize reconcilliation, not resolution.

I have burnt bridges in my past and I really don’t see the point of reestablishing relationship anymore, but this chapter teaches me to make sure that my present and future relationship will be harmonious.
