Do you ever wait...or avoid uncomfortable conversations? Do you ever just hope your problems will disappear without any confrontations? I do. I don't like conflict. I don't enjoy awkward discussions. I don't like to frustrate people. But there are times when we just have to say what needs to be said.

Proverbs 6 begins by giving advice about debt. In these first four verses there are a few great statements that help us deal with hard stuff. So here are the steps...First, place yourself at your friend's mercy. Next, swallow your pride. Then go and beg for mercy. Last, do it now.

I think this is just a great list. We would be less worried and stressed if we just dealt with difficult situations quickly and humbly. But that's easier said then done. I hope we can take the steps we need to take...that's my prayer for this week.
