Conflict doesn’t feel good, but it happens!  Do you deal with it or avoid it?  When it happens, there are a few things that can be done to help cure the conflict.

C = Communicate to express your concern, issue, disagreement, etc. When you can’t work it out, seek Godly Counsel.  (Matt. 18:15-17)

O = Omit past mistakes and deal with the present issue. (I Corin. 13:5)

N = Never go to bed angry and never threaten to divorce. (Ephesians 4:26, 29)

F = Forgive one another and don’t Fight! Keep your hands to yourself and don’t get in a person’s face in the midst of conflict.  (Ephesians 4:32, II Timothy 2:24)

L = Listen to the person speaking.  Don’t lie!  Lies make conflict worst.  Keep displaying  love! (James 1:19)

I = Invite God in by praying about the situation. (Phil. 4:6-7)

C = Confidential:  Everyone does not need to know about your conflict. (Prov. 17:9)

T = Tone:  Watch your tone, temper and  your tongue.  Don’t yell, use curse words, slam doors or say anything that you may regret.  Pick a good time to talk.  (Colossians 4:6)

God has a cure for every conflict that we have.  Sometimes we will not see eye to eye on a given situation.  Cast your cares, concerns and conflicts on the Lord.  He can handle it!

Until next week . . .
