  • A friend stood up against an injustice. A group of people were standing by when his wife heard about what he did and because he put himself in harm's way she reacted in anger. He could have gotten defensive that she chastised him in public, but instead he responded gently. Mature friends and lovers stay connected to people even when they are angry with them, and because their focus is on the other person, they can tell when anger is really worry and find a loving spirit even when being attacked.

Ron: I once witnessed someone act in a mature, loving way and I learned a lot.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Here’s what happened:  A friend of mine stood up against an injustice. A small group of people were standing by when his wife heard about what he did. And because he put himself in harm’s way she reacted in anger. Now, he could have gotten defensive or embarrassed that other people were looking on as she chastised him, but instead he responded gently, acknowledging that she was worried about him.

Listen, mature friends and lovers stay connected to people even when they are angry with them, and because their focus is on the other person, they can tell when anger is really worry and find a loving spirit even when being attacked. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
