Don’t you hate it when a friend or sibling keeps doing something that irritates you? How tempting is it to just try fix them – like that Coldplay song?

But what if the thing you see in that person is a reflection of what you keep doing in your life too?

Jesus said one day that all God’s guidance in the Bible could be summarised in 11 words: do to others what you would have them do to you (Matthew 7v12)

So go for it, let your friend know what you think – but lovingly, in the same way you’d want your friend to point out what you’re doing to irritate them too.

That’s love in action – Jesus style.
