Rock, Paper, Scissors
Sometimes, to settle an argument, flip a coin.
I know that sounds simplistic, but the Bible in Proverbs 18:18 has practical guidance for solving a problem. “Casting the lot settles disputes and keeps strong opponents apart.” Apparently adding chance to the equation gets you beyond the impasse. Hey, Rock, Paper, Scissors settled fights between my kids about who goes first! And, going second taught our kids about delaying their wants, considering the needs of others, and being less selfish. Now, there’s a life lesson for us adults, too.
