FamilyLife Blended®with Ron L. Deal
Drop It, Let It Go Monday, July 6, 2020
Sometimes, the best way to avoid a conflict is to just drop it. No, I’m not talking about avoiding. Avoiding just postpones conflict, it doesn’t resolve it. I’m suggesting that not everything is worth a conflict. The biblical proverb warns, “Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.” Look, not everything is a hill to die on especially if your marriage or family is already stressed. If you can be generous with mercy, let it go.
