Causes of Conflict – Part IV

This week we’re discussing some of the causes of conflict in today’s workplace. One of those causes is hatred.

Years ago, at a Graduate School of Banking event, a comedian asked everyone to stand. He then asked us to look to the person to our right. He then asked everyone to look to the person to their left.

Then he told us, “Statistically, one of these people hate you and, they may not even know you.” His point was that sometimes people dislike us for reasons we’ll never understand. This can make for a stressful workplace.

Proverbs 10:12 has a recommendation when it says, “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”

If someone in your workplace hates you, your hope lies in praying for and loving them.
