Dealing with Difficult People

This is Episode 75 of The Jesus Society Podcast, and today I want to talk about dealing with difficult people. And the reason I want to talk about this today is that I’ve been dealing with some difficult people over the last few weeks.

If you don’t ever have any problems dealing with difficult people, then perhaps you can just skip this episode, but if, like many of us, you struggle to know how to deal with difficult people, then you might just find a few things in this episode that’ll help.

Join me today as we discuss:

1. Some of the types of difficult people we encounter.

2. Some biblical guardrails to help govern our interactions with difficult people and at least keep us from getting off into the ditches.

3. The tricky business of dealing with fools.

4. How the book of Nehemiah can really help us when it comes to difficult people.
