They're WORTH IT!

When my children had an issue with each other or even with someone else, and they were hurt by something someone did or neglected to do, I was always careful to tell them that the other person was WORTH dealing with because of all the good they added to their life.

It is important to "feed" unity in relationships with others.  Relationships are fragile and can be easily broken.  People make mistakes, and we need to teach our children how to successfully deal with frustrations in relationships without breaking the relationship.

What are all the good things that the person has added to your life?  Is the little difference or problem area worth losing all the wonderful things that the person means to you?  

Challenge:  Make sure you teach your children to overlook faults in someone and protect their relationships!

Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions”  (Prov 10:11-12 AMP)
