There’s no doubt that from time to time we’ll have to deal with difficult people.
There’s no need for us to identify them. . .you know who they are.
Number One: get rid of your difficult attitude. . .first.
“Yes, but Brother Harold, it’s not my attitude that’s the problem. . .it’s them.”
The object of your attention may have the worst attitude of anybody you’ve ever meet BUT you can’t move anyone else until you move yourself. It’s just the way God works (Matthew 5:23-24; 18:15-16)
You must get rid of any vindictiveness or offense. . .that’s occupying space in your mental hard drive.
You’ll never be able to break through the wall surrounding difficult people as long as you have the wrong kind of attitude.
What kind of attitude should you have?
Philippians 2:5 in the Amplified Bible says:
“Have this same attitude in yourselves which was in Christ Jesus [look to Him as your example in selfless humility].”
