How to LOVE Conflict

Here is a a tool we gave out to families from Our Savior during a message on conflict.


How to LOVE Conflict

Look in the Mirror
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Matthew 7:3-5

Own Your Emotions
 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.  James 1:19-20

Value their perspective
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.  Philippians 2:3-4

Express Grace
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
