Conflicts of Differentness
In Episode 14 we are talking about conflicts resulting from 'differentness'. People are different and that can contribute to disagreements of style and personality. We will look at the seven practical guidelines for resolving those types of conflicts. Hopefully, each person involved has a willing heart to hear what the scriptures have to say about conflicts that arise from areas of disagreement- often differences of preference, where one person’s temperament or tastes are displeasing to another person. This involves learning to see the qualities in the other person that the Lord created within them, guarding our hearts against judgmental attitudes or misunderstandings, and learning to listen to the other person, communicate in a biblical manner, and for one person to choose to yield to the desires of the other person. Romans 12:18 says, “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” (Make sure you click the link below and read Romans 12 in it's content). Wherever it is possible, we are to do as much as depends on us, in order to live peaceably with others.
Every blessing to you as you listen! Pastor Jeff
