MARCH 17 v 1 TWELVE STEPPING WITH POWER IN THE PROVERB
Better a dry crust eaten in peace
than a house filled with feasting—and conflict.
STEP 9 - Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Better to live in a house with nothing and have peace ! Conflict is a number one trigger for a lot of folks . When all hell is breaking lose at home sometimes its a good idea to step out of the situation call your sponsor or hit your knees until the craziness start to settle down . Once the smoke settles get rid of the source of conflict by committing step nine . Remember when we were out there doing our thing we caused a lot of heartache to the ones we live with . That heartache has destroyed our credibility and our loved ones who are victims of our insanity will have a lot of resentment and bitterness towards us . We have to earn there respect and trust and that is not going to happen overnight . They will need the most time to heal so be patient with them and try and see it from their point of view don't push and get angry like the old days. Love them unconditionally like they did for you even though your every other word was lie and you cannot count on your hands how many times you robbed them .
Matthew chapter 10 v 38 - Those who do not take up their cross and follow in my STEPS are not fit to be my disciples .
