James 4:11 Don’t speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God’s law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you.

People want to be seen and don’t understand that you can make an impact silently.

Relationships are destroyed because people want to be prominent. John did not ask why Peter used singularity while they were sent together. Acts 3:6 But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”. If you don’t know what you are good at, you will be jealous.

Who are you fighting?

Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples. Don’t win arguments and loose relationships. Make sure you understand and know your enemy. We are fighting a common enemy, some are just available to be used. Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Value people, God uses people to bless us.

You don’t have to be friends with everybody, it’s impossible to always agree but don’t let the differences collapse relationships with people. There are those you must love but keep at a distance. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

As we pray the answer will come through people.
