Need a jump-start for your character?
Forgive Yourself and Forgive Others.
There are three common possibilities after conflict occurs:
– Conflict escalates
– Conflict goes underground
– Conflict is resolved constructively
So often when we screw up we respond one of three ways:
– Deflect or Deny
– Deal with it
Fortunately, our perspective does not limit God’s perspective.

I worked the graveyard shift as a desk clerk in suburban Chicago. While the weekend night were often busy late into the night, many nights I had lots of free time. I was confined to a small space in a locked office behind glass. I spoke through a slot below the glass. I exchanged money and passed room keys through that small opening.
Yes, there were lonely, sleepy nights.
Alone I had several options. I watched television. I listened to music. Occasionally I napped. As a newly committed God-follower I spent hours reading my Bible.
