A Wise & Peaceful Way to Handle Conflict

Is there a right way to handle conflict? Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.” Romans 14_19 NIV

When it comes to conflict how do you normally handle it? Do you choose to keep silent? Do you speak our mind? Do you avoid the person so you won’t have to deal with it?  Perhaps, like me, you’ve done all of the above depending on the situation and the people involved.

These questions may have you wondering if there is a correct way to handle conflict. But as Kristine Brown explains there’s “no fix-all solution” for us to follow when it comes to handling conflict.  So what do we do when conflict arises? We pursue peace.

Join guest blogger Kristine Brown as she encourages us to follow Jesus’ example and peacefully handle conflict with others. In her devotion she also shares four important questions we can use as a guide to help us navigate the road that leads to peace and mutual edification with others. I’m excited to have Kristine Brown with us for this part of the series! I invite you to visit her on her blog More Than Yourself to read more.
