Greetings! Welcome to The Biblical Counseling Podcast.
Conflicts are like forest fires. James says, "...The tongue is a flame of fire...It can set your whole life on fire..." If you address them when they are still small, you can save yourself much grief. At the same time, many conflicts appear out of control, as desires erupt into massive confrontations. What is it that most often prevents conflicts from being resolved?
In this first episode of the Biblical Counseling Podcast, Pastor Jeff Christianson and his wife, Jennie Christianson, introduce the podcast’s first series on conflict resolution. Pastor Jeff and Jennie want to train biblical counselors and biblical peacemakers. Biblical counselors are counselors who counsel’s God’s way with God’s Word. Pastor Jeff hopes to provide listeners around the country and the world with a weekly resource for training and equipping in biblical counseling.
In this episode, Pastor Jeff and Jennie address the first prerequisite to resolving conflict in interpersonal relationships. The first prerequisite for conflict resolution is humility. Humility is often connected with pride. Pride is the one sin, above all others, that hinders our ability to resolve conflicts with others. Proverbs 13:10 says, "Pride leads to conflict..." What is the opposite of pride? Humility. Paul says, "I beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle." Do you know that there are prerequisites to resolving conflict God's way? Would you like to know what they are? Join me in this episode to discover the answers.
In this series, we will see four main character qualities which help to prevent conflict:
- Walking in Humility
- Learn Gentleness
