Emoji Malfunction – Part 1

Messy Relationships 

Colossians 3:8-9, 12-13 (NLT)

Romans 7:15,18-19, 21-25 (NLT)

  • Sometimes we can trace our behavior to an emotion. 

Jesus experienced and expressed emotions.

How can I get better at resolving conflict in my relationships?

  1. Understand that feelings are not facts.  
  • Anxiety intensifies how we feel or react to things. 
  • In the heat of the battle we need to pause and sort out our emotions so we can separate our feelings from the facts.
  1. Do the hard work of developing your communication skills.
  • The message sent is not always the message received. 
  • Good questions to ask if communication is breaking down.
    • What did you mean by that? Can you clarify?
    • What did you think I was trying to say?
    • What is the main point or big idea you are trying to make?
    • How do you feel about what I said?  
    • Was I being insensitive?
  1. Never make assumptions about people even if you know them extremely well.
  • The less we know about people, the more indifferent we become. 
  • The more we know about people, the more we value them.
  1. Remember that every person is loved and valued by God. 
  • Never define people by their bad behavior. 
  • Counteracting negative sentiment override requires consciously building a more positive outlook. 
  • Is there someone in your life who needs your acceptance?
