As we strive to live and exemplify the Fruits of the Spirit, we become more generous to one another. This often means making compromises, but there are times when meeting halfway doesn’t work. We can’t have half a child or buy one and a half a car (well, maybe if the one’s a Mini-Cooper).
When compromise is impossible, we get the chance to live in the spirit of generosity. One of us will be happier than the other once the conflict is resolved. The happier partner should appreciate the gift and remember to live into the spirit of generosity in other uncompromising situations.
