Confront In Love

Confrontation, motivated by love, is a valuable key to reconciliation. Do not allow fear to stop you from discussing your hurt with the person who is responsible for it. Many people become resentful, embittered and gossips simply because of their willingness to avoid confrontation.

Confronting in love is scriptural.  You do not have to scream, rant or fight; just schedule a convenient time with the person who wronged you, if possible, and then ask the Holy Spirit to help you come across in a loving way.

Dialogue is an attempt to salvage a deteriorating relationship. Choose to initiate conversation; do not wait for the other person to approach you first, as he or she may never do so.

Refuse the traps of hurt; spitefulness and a critical spirit. Instead, give others an opportunity to clarify their reactions to you. In the process, you will also give your mind a chance to understand the motivation of others’ behaviours toward you.

When you confront in love you prove your obedience to the Word of God, and God greatly honours and rewards obedience.

“”If your brother acts wrongly towards you, go and point out his fault to him when only you and he are there. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.” Matthew 18:15

Remain blessed,

Wale
