Foundations for building the relationship bridge when it’s difficult.
There will always be things that offend me; staying offended is a choice.
Remaining offended or holding the grudge only hurts me and my testimony.
Be willing to listen to understand rather than listen to respond.
The integrity and strength of the relationship bridge that I build is only as strong as the commitment I’m willing to make.
Remember: Christ in me is stronger than the influences of the world around me that tells me to burn the bridge. If my identity is in Christ that should shape my actions in building relationship bridges.
