Fighting With Family

May 9-23, 2021   |   3 Sermons

None of us like to admit that our families aren’t perfect. None of us like to admit that our families have problems. But, whether we want to admit it or not, all families have conflict...all families fight.

 

But not all families fight fair. In this sermon series, we'll be talking about some of the unfair things we do and how to correct them to make sure we always fight fair with the people we love the most.

Sermon 1

Different Perspectives

May 9, 2021

There's an old cliche that says there are three sides to every story - your side, their side, and what actually happened. One of our biggest problems when it comes to fighting fair is that we forget that not everyone sees things from the same perspective.

In this sermon, we'll be reminded that we all see things differently. And we'll be talking about what we can do to learn to see things through someone else's eyes.

Sermon 2

Head On

May 16, 2021

You can't really fix a problem if you don't know what the problem is. But, when it comes to fighting with our family, we're often afraid to address a problem head-on. Instead, we behave in passive-aggressive ways hoping that the people we love the most will just magically know what's going on in our heads. 

But that's never going to happen. So, if we want to fight fair, we have to be willing to be direct and face our problems head-on.

Sermon 3

Nobody's Perfect

May 23, 2021

One of the biggest reasons that we don't fight fair with the people we love the most is that we have unrealistic expectations for the other people in our lives. We expect that everyone around us won't make mistakes or mess up.

So, when we find out that our relationships aren't perfect, we can take it out on the people we're supposed to love. But, if we want to fight fair, we have to remember that nobody's perfect...including us.
