You Hurt Me! Now What?

Remove pride and judgmentalism by humbling yourself (Matt. 7:5). Pride says, "The faults in others I can easily see, but praise God there's none in me."

Although not every conflict will be resolved, these biblical principles will tilt the odds in your favor. Be encouraged: God sees your heart and will reward you based on your actions, not the actions of the other person. You can't change them, but you can change yourself.

They have lost the compass of truth and the boldness of the Spirit.

In the article, he bashes Trump while completely glossing over the election shenanigans. He then says that "President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man." Confused? So was I.
