How to Demonstrate Flexibility

at Home

  • Being willing to change ideas or plans based on the cautions of one another.
  • Being open to one another’s suggestions on how to improve home life.
  • Welcoming family emergencies as opportunities to build character.
  • Giving up activities that conflict with family priorities – without griping.

at Work/School

  • Being willing to help a struggling student to understand a concept.
  • Listening to the advice of others who may be able to share a more effective way to accomplish your task.

at Church

  • Being open to changes in the order of service (Rather than – “But this is the way we’ve always done it…”).
  • Ministering to other families in a time of crisis.
  • Being willing to change plans or activities in deference to others who might be offended.
