Russell Gehrlein helpfully shows how workplace conflict can be used by God, in his grace and mercy, to mature the Christian in faith.
"Have you ever thought about how God uses you to meet the full spectrum of human needs (physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually) by what you do all day?
If you are a hard worker with an unreasonable boss, God is using your talents to contribute to the success of that organization. By your cooperation and submission to his or her authority, you are blessing your employer (Prov. 25:13). If you are a doctor treating a cranky patient, God is using you to heal. If you are a teacher with a slow student, God is using you to help them understand truth. If you are a parent comforting a fussy baby, God is using you to sustain their life with His love."
