Everyone has their own style of dealing with conflict. Some people try to win at all costs and will do or say anything to get their own way. Others hate conflict and will do or say anything to avoid or end it. Sadly, neither fighting nor avoidance leads to genuine peace or restored relationships. Is there a better way?
Timothy S. Lane, pastor, counselor, husband, and father, shares the biblical principles that point to God’s better way of dealing with conflict. When you understand the real source of your conflicts and the lasting cure that God in his Word offers, you will see that your conflicts don’t have to be negative; instead they can be an opportunity to grow and deepen your relationship with God and others.
