Pastor Q&A // Part 10

QUESTION: My child would like to ask: how do I get along better with my siblings?

ANSWER: Pastor Mike

That is a great question that every child should ask! Sibling relationships can be complicated and rife with conflict. On the other hand, siblings can sometimes be the best of friends. 

Jesus had brothers and sisters. I would venture to say that Jesus alwaysgot along with his siblings. Why? Because he always gave preference to others. Philippians 2:3-4 serve as a model for all of us. I think every child should memorize these verses. 

If every child was always thinking about the interests of his/her sibling, there would be no conflict. I would challenge your child to be the one who is always placing his sibling’s needs and desires first, and in so doing, there will be peace!
