But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. — Psalm 37:11 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource Starting Your Day Right – by Joyce Meyer
Guess what: we can learn to get along with people! Even though it gets really hard sometimes, with God’s help, it is possible. It’s especially important to learn to get along with our immediate family members and co-workers, because they’re the ones we do life with day in and day out. There are many informative books about personality differences to help us understand why people feel and act the way they do. Understanding can do so much to help smooth out strained relationships.
People make decisions differently. Some give an immediate answer, while others want time to think about things. Try to understand the people you see today. Ask God to show you ways to get along with them better. As you trust Him, He’ll guide your steps and give you favor with the people around you.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for being there for me as I navigate relationships. Please show me how I can understand and love others better. Help me to do what’s right in each situation, and then trust You with the outcome. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
