March Madness - Day 29


Learn to Prepare for Conflict

I get it!

No one wants to entertain conflict, let alone prepare for it

But the reality is that YOU will face conflict. Everyone does. It's unavoidable.

When you know better, you do better.

Now that you know it's coming, prepare for it.

Jesus did!

He is our guiding light in all that we do. Of He did it, so can we.

Today is Maundy Thursday!

Are you familiar with this day?

It's the Thursday before Resurrection Sunday. Our time to celebrate the Last Supper.

Jesus hosted the Last Supper because He knew what was ahead. 


He knew that conflict was on the horizon and instead of running from it, He embraced it.

He took this opportunity to serve those who has been serving Him.

He took this opportunity to appreciate those close to Him.

In John 13:33, we see that he took this opportunity to prepare them.
““My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.

He took this opportunity to reveal His knowledge about a couple of His disciples.
(Don't forget....God knows ALL!)

‭‭All that Jesus said and did that night was with poise.

To prepare for conflict, you don't have to be rude. You don't have to be loud. You don't have to become boisterous.

Preparing for conflict is as simple as knowing that conflict is impending and diffusing the surprise.

When you prepare, you are not caught off guard. (John 18:4)

You are ready for the things that lie ahead.

Get ready!

What can you do to prepare yourself for your  impending conflict?

The summer is upon us and you know what that means.

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....
