WHAT CAUSES CONFLICT?

Hatred
* Proverbs 10:12- Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sin

Hot Tempered Heart
*Proverbs 15:18- A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.

Perverse Heart
*Proverbs 16:28- A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.

Greedy Heart
*Proverbs 28:25- He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered.

Angry Heart

WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT CONFLICT?

Resolution by numbers
*Matthew 18:16- But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’

Need for Resolution
*Matthew 5:23-24- Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way.

Resolve Quickly
*Proverbs 5:25-26- Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.
