“Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.” – 2 Timothy 2:23-24
In part two of our teaching series, “You Asked For It,” this week’s question, “how do I handle difficult people?” As we live life, it will be inevitable that we will have to deal with difficult people and humbly, we could be the difficult person ourself. There is nothing fun about having to navigate these types of relationships, but Jesus teaches and models for us how we can deal with difficult people. In the end, difficult people don’t have to drain our lives, but by implementing certain principles, we can approach them with grace and wisdom.
