Be Jesus: A Difficult Ex-Spouse 1

with Ron Deal | June 15, 2020

What I mean by "be like Jesus" is try to love as best you can and live truth. We all have difficult people in our lives. For some divorced Christians it's the biological parent in the other home which is tough because your child needs to continue a relationship with them, but you may not appreciate their influence. So, what do you do? Set a good example. You can't control your co-parent's behavior, but you can control your own. Continue to grow and strive to be like Christ.

Ron: Now, what I mean by “be like Jesus” is try to be as loving as you can be and live truth. We all have difficult people in our lives and for that matter so do our kids. It could be another child at school for them. For some divorced Christians it’s the biological parent in the other home. Now that’s tough because your child needs to continue a relationship with them, but you may not appreciate their influence.

So, what do you do? Well, let’s start here. Set a good example. You may not be able to control your co-parent’s behavior, but you can certainly control your own. Continue to grow and strive to be like Christ. Light always outshines the dark. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
