Dealing with Difficult People

00:00

Description

So, the next time someone rubs you the wrong way, ask God to use that difficulty to make you stronger; let the hurt draw you closer to Him.

Has someone ever rubbed you the wrong way? Difficult people are one of life’s realities. But they can also be God's way of giving us hope. I know what you're thinking - how can God use people who bring pain in my life to give me hope?

In her book, Sandpaper People, Mary Southerland says God uses abrasive people to grind off our rough edges and make us more like Him. When we go to God with our difficult relationships and ask Him for help, He teaches us how to endure challenges. Endurance teaches us patience and the Bible says patience gives us stronger character, and character produces… hope!

So, the next time someone rubs you the wrong way, ask God to use that difficulty to make you stronger and, then, let the hurt draw you closer to Him.
