“I can not control what others say or do but I can control how I respond.” I quote this daily to my children. We need to learn to take responsibility for how we act and how we respond to other people.
We are having a “respond with kindness ” challenge at the Henry Home.
Even in disagreements you can treat the other person with kindness and respect. You don’t have to start name calling. There is no reason to be unkind or belittle anyone.
This challenge is not about giving in, and not taking a stand. It is about treating others the way Christ would treat them. It is about obeying Christ. It is about glorifying God with your words and actions. It is about pointing others to Christ with your words and actions. It is about showing respect to others. It is about showing the World the Love of God. It is about being kind.
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Eph 4:32
