Clearing away office conflict

We don't have to wait for "them" to get better. Healing in the office can start right now—with us.

The business world can be a challenging place to be, especially when relationships in the workplace do not run smoothly. Sometimes people find themselves confronted with discord of such intensity that the office environment can only be described as hostile. What can we do in such a situation?

Although it's human nature to think "When so-and-so shapes up, things at work will be better," what really helps to restore harmony is a willingness to remove what the Master, Christ Jesus, called the "beam" from our own thinking before we worry about the "mote" in someone else's. See Matt. 7:3–5. This provides a solid, spiritual basis for overcoming office discord.
