Don’t be misled – you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always reap what you sow. (Galatians 6:7)
3 Rules to Fighting Fair:
Rule #1: Listen to understand, not to reload.
Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. (Proverbs 18:2)
…everyone should be quick to listen… (James 1:19)
Rule #2: Talk to help, not to hurt.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29)
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. (James 1:19)
Rule #3: Resolve your conflict today or it will be bigger tomorrow.
In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. (Ephesians 4:26)
If you never go to bed angry, then you will always wake up with a smile.
