  1. “Let nothing that anyone does to you alter your treatment of them.” *sing sing voice* Con-vic-tion! Oh yeah. Ouch. LOL. Hit a big gnarly nail on the head right there. It’s hard to look at sin even when you genuinely want to change.

    1. Oh, I know! I’m so thankful for a God who patiently teaches… 🙂

  2. Boy, that is hard to do! As I was reading I was thinking, I don’t do that, but I do. I do avoid the people that cause me discomfort of some kind. Something we all need to work at!

  3. Great, practical advice! Thank you for being a Titus 2 woman!! I will hold this in my heart and mind this week and hopefully carry whatever crosses come my way in the same way my Jesus did.

    1. Laura! It’s good to hear from you again.

      I pray that we all can carry what crosses come our way. And may we know Christ better through them. <3

  4. I really struggled with this before leaving my job. My supervisor kept telling me (this was over months) that my co-workers were complaining about me. Just picky little things but enough to set me on my defensive. There was one in particular that she continually intimated was *tattling* on me, etc. At the end she told me that this woman had reported to her that I was being aggressive and had threatened her. You don’t know me well but neither aggression nor attacking is in my character and I was mad! I never did confront the woman. But God confronted ME about being kind no matter what she did or said. And so I opened my door (even though I wanted to retreat into my cave), I smiled, I waved, I spoke kindly. And after I quit I told her that I had given notice and she was shocked and seemed genuinely sad. It occurred to me that my supervisor was not above taking things out of context and this woman had possibly never truly offended me. I was glad that I was able to leave without hard feelings.

    1. Oh, that is so, so hard. How wonderful that you were able to leave without any hard feelings though. Such a testimony!

  5. This is something I have been working on with a couple of people. This post is God sent! Thank you for your obedience.

    1. May you be filled with grace as you strive to follow. <3
