It is not always easy to be kind, especially when kindness is not shown to us.
My kids have different personalities and various ways they deal with conflict. One child shoves when they don’t get their way. The other raises his voice and waves a finger to emphasize his point while another plays the victim and insists the whole world is against them.
Romans 12:10 reminds us this is not the way we should handle trouble with others. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
This doesn’t come easy. So how do we do encourage our kids to do what’s right when everything within us wants to let our emotions dictate their behavior?
