OK, we had a bible study at our house so I failed to blog last night BUT..
Here goes my follow-up of yesterday and I will post more later.
Before I start let me say thatthe content of what I am going to say isn't the point but the method of being honest and humble and praying about observable problems. My problem is how I deal with conflict. Here goes..
I was having an extrodinarily good day. I was being very thoughtful and could very much listen and show concern for people I work with. If I was like that all the time I would be walking on water so to speak.
I even had a discussion with a friend about things going quite well
I got on the phone with a friend and I became very mean and argumentative. Here my take
I do the exact opposite of what I said we ought to do in the AA and Grace post. I do not let people be where they are in their journey. I try to force them to my solution as opposed to simply saying I am cool with XYZ but if you want my oppinion on ABC I am not into it. Instead I use forcefulness. AA friends of mine say that when you are disturbed it is your problem. So why do I get disturbed.
Here is the point. We need to pray and focus on solving the directly observable problems as they surface in our life and BE RUTHLESLY HONEST.Take ownership with things that happen during the day that are less than a beautiful picture of Jesus. Conflict is a big skill. I have conflict with people a lot and I need to learn how to handle conflict with great grace.
