The cause you are working in is good.
The people who are serving with you are working for the same cause.
Personalities are different… that’s the way God intended it.
Don’t resent differences… rejoice in them.
Don’t make judgments too quickly or too harshly.
Don’t read minds or hear what isn’t spoken.
Listen with care for expressions of weakness.
Study the delicate art of forgiveness.
Study the bold art of reconciliation.
Practice forgetting the failures of others.
Commit yourself to long term goals and relationships.
Do what is necessary to maintain those relationships and reach those goals
Be quick to Say, “I’m sorry.”
Be quick to Hear, “I’m sorry.”
If your reaction in crisis is to quit… don’t.
Let each new relationship start fresh.
Avoid dragging yesterday’s offenses into today.
Prepare for conflict.
