We all want to get along with others. We want to be the peacemakers instead of the troublemakers. We want to be liked instead of giving offense. And we want life to flow as smoothly as possible as often as possible.
We watch our words, we try to help when possible and we look out for others as best we can.
But there is a time to yield and a time to stand.
There comes a time when getting along is outweighed by the need to speak up.
There comes a time when being a 'team' player is coming at the cost of your personal integrity.
And there comes a time to stand your ground and do what is right.
No matter whose feelings you hurt, who doesn't like it and whatever the outcome.
Do you need to 'stand' today?
