“Dealing With Difficult People”
Dealing with difficult people is unavoidable.
Moses had Pharaoh. David had Saul. Nehemiah had Sanballat. Elijah had Jezebel and Jesus had the Pharisees.
It’s been said that if you want plenty of experience in dealing with difficult people, then just start having children.
So what exactly is a “difficult person?” A difficult person is simply a normal person like you and me at their worst. Difficult people exhibit personality quirks that make them hard to be around. Sometimes referred to as “sandpaper people” they rub us the wrong way.
Over the next three weeks we’re going to be talking about how to biblically deal with the difficult people in our lives. We’ll also consider the possibility that we are the difficult person in someone else’s life.
In preparation for Sunday, please read Colossians 3:16 which will serve as our capstone Scripture for this series. You might want to read it from the NLT and the Amplified Bible.
See you Sunday!
