7 Ways to Respond to Negative People in the Church



Following Jesus’ command to love others can be difficult around negative people, especially when they are fellow members of the church. However, negativity does not absolve us from following our Lord’s command. We must love even when it’s difficult. Here are seven ways to help you love your negative neighbor.

  • Filter the Negativity

Do not outright dismiss negative talk; see whether there is any truth in it. If there is none, dismiss it quickly. Do not let it control you.

  • Learn

Humility is a virtue; do not be afraid to listen and, if possible, learn. At times, the circumstance warrants criticism.
