dealing with difficult people

25 03 2012

If your attitude to people who give you a hard time is the same as theirs to you, they will only see flesh—flesh seeing flesh. But if you simply love them as Christ’s, though they may not yet know it, and show them only love and acceptance in whatever way God leads you to do so, then they will see the Christ of love in the one they “despitefully use.” God is giving you maybe one final glorious chance of being Christ in the flesh towards what the world might call “enemies.”
