Then he sent his brothers away, and as they were leaving he said to them, “Don’t quarrel on the way!” Genesis 45:24 New International Version
Joseph knew his brothers would be quarreling over who was responsible for him being mistreated when his father found out that he was alive and was going to meet him in Egypt.
Don’t we all do the same thing with the “not my fault, your fault” syndrome?
Is it not better to be mature and take responsibility for our wrongs and try to correct them? I know personally of some relationships that were destroyed that were once close because of this very action.
Are you experiencing trouble in a relationship with your spouse, children, parents, friends or co-workers?
Could it be that it is because you are being immature and irresponsible in not apologizing?
Sometimes these problems can only be solved by a good Christian councilor. I say Christian because their wisdom will come from the Bible which is the best guidance book of them all.
Why not try some Christian resource like Focus on the Family and see if they can suggest a councilor in your area?
If the other one or ones involved in this refuse to attend then go yourself.
That is exactly what happened to me and now I have peace while they are still warring within themselves and amongst themselves.
A wise man seeks wise council Proverbs 1:5 New International Version Prayer:
Please Jehovah Elohim (God our eternal creator) bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to resolve the problem of _________________ (write in what the problem is) my relationship with _____________ (write in the name of those involved with the problem). If necessary please guide us to Christ centered councilors to help resolve this dispute. I honestly request this in the name of the greatest councilor of all Jesus Christ. Amen.
WARNING: Do not pray this unless you are sincere because if you are not sincere and pray this and Jehovah brings you the guidance you need and you reject it you will be held accountable for your refusal on the terrible Day of Judgment.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
