4 Tips on confrontation



Thoughts on Confrontation

When I was younger, I thought confrontation was a good word. I’d run to any challenge. I’d face any comer. That’s changed since my heart attack. But the good news is, I learned how to speak the truth in love that’s what I’m going to share with you today.

4 Tips on Confrontation

  1. When your challenged, it might be ok to ignore. Nehemiah wouldn’t be taken away from his work at rebuilding the wall. (Nehemiah 6:2–3) Is the situation ignorable?
  2. If you can’t avoid the challenge — look for the gold in the person. What does God love about them? It changes you from wanting to defend yourself to wanting to hear God’s thoughts about what’s happening. Remember, a soft answer turns away wrath. (Proverbs 15:1)
  3. If you need to confront someone — When you need to confront realize your not in the right place if your going to enjoy putting someone in their place. Take the time to get in the right place. Figure out if they are willing to listen — drop seeds, set standards, give them the time to come back to you.
  4. In either situation — protect your peace. Remember to forgive and bless.

Can I pray?

Heavenly Father, if we need to talk to someone about something help us to do it in love. Help us to look out for the interest of others. Help us to speak in love. Give us boldness to speak the truth.
