As Mommas, we are often called in to play judge, jury, court clerk, lawyer when dealing with the skirmishes of the household. Sometimes they don't even involve the kids, but the grown-ups like to get in on the action as well! I thought I'd focus the next few mornings to improving reconciliation to keep things at a somewhat even keel!
Disagreements come in all sizes and shapes. But if they don't work themselves out quickly, sometimes we Mommas have to intervene. These principles are for our tiffs in our various adult relationships. You'll find the base of this advice from Romans Twelve, if you'd like to follow along.
God tells us to resolve conflict quickly. Do whatever it takes to reconcile with your loved ones.
Romans 12:16 says "Live in harmony with one another."
-This is the foundation for a peaceful household. Put others first.
-Think of small acts of kindness.
-Think ahead of what would make life a little easier for those around you.
-If there is someone that you are having issues with, take the first step to make it right. Don't wait. (Ephesians 4:26) Don't let the sun go down on your anger.
Do you have some suggestions for helping to keep harmony in the home? I'd love to know! Please leave me a comment below!
