One of my Facebook friends subscribes to a site called “Message
From God . . . On this day, God wants you to know . . .” One of the more recent messages was:
“… that difficult people are very important, – they teach you tolerance and acceptance. If all was going your way all the time, you would become
a spoiled child, wouldn’t everyone? Difficult people are just one of the ways God teaches.”
We all deal with difficult people, sometimes within our very own families. And with families gathering for the holidays, this can be a very stressful time. How can we try to make this year different? If we open ourselves to hear what God is telling us, what lessons can we learn?
