The Bible instructs us on not demanding our way. This is another hard one to take in. Demanding our ways all the time leads to strife and contention.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
