How to resolve a conflict with LOVE:

  • Listen~Truly hear what the other person is saying. (James 1:19)  My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
  • Speak the truth in LOVE~ in a way that doesn't threaten or accuse them.(Ephesians 4:15) Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 
  • Forgive~ forgiving means giving up the right to punish those who hurt or offended you. (Ephesians4:32)Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

  1. Such truth and good words and yet, so difficult to remember and put into practice daily (many times a day!). And so hard to model to my children at times.
