Here is a (loose) quote and credited to Leo Tolstoy:
It’s not how compatible you are but how you deal with incompatibility
Incapability means: Mismatched – Unsuited – Unharmonious – Dissenting
Wow! This quote is not just about marriage. It refers to all our relationships – Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Daughters, Sons, Grand-Children, Friends (anymore on this vast list?)
How many couples are mismatched?
How many extended family members live with dissention?
How immediate families live in unharmonious situations?
I’ll answer my own questions – How about every couple, how about every extended family members and how about every family?
I have good news and bad news! This quote deals with the individual (you and me).
The good news is: It’s all about me
The bad news is: It’s all about me and how I deal with everyone
Read the quote again – It’s not how compatible YOU are but how YOU deal with incompatibility.
Gulp! When it comes to compatibility; it’s all about ME and how I deal with others!
Romans 12: 18 (NIV) If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Hebrews 12: 14 (NIV) Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
