Impossible people! Who hasn’t dealt with someone who makes our life miserable? Whether overbearing, rude, demanding—fill in the blank—they are taxing to be around. It may be a boss, a coworker, a fellow church member, or even someone within our family. They drain our emotions and leave us exhausted when dealing with them.
When such people come into our lives, we must choose how to react. Our response can either escalate the problem or lead to a more peaceful relationship. Dealing in a calm manner without lashing back is not easy, but it is biblical. It is also part of our Christian witness.
