In 1988, Yellowstone National Park was burned by a massive forest fire that cost $120 million to extinguish. A number of factors contributed. For a long time the forest service would quickly put out small forest fires, which resulted in a huge build-up of debris. Some people are like this. When a relational conflict arises, they quickly put it out and relationship rubble builds up. Don’t be afraid of conflict. When managed, it removes what is unhealthy and helps your forest to be free of debris.

Ron: In 1988, Yellowstone National Park was burned by a massive forest fire that cost $120 million to extinguish. A number of factors contributed to the fire burning out of control. For a long time the forest service would quickly put out small forest fires. What resulted was a huge build-up of debris.

A lot of people are like this. When a relational conflict arises, they quickly put it out. Over time, relationship rubble builds up and easily fuels a wildfire. Don’t be afraid of conflict. When managed, it removes what is unhealthy and helps your forest to be free of debris. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
