Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." But it often seems like conflict and disagreement are unavoidable.
Serious, divisive conflict is everywhere—within families, in the church, and out in the world. And it can seem impossible to overcome its negative force in our lives. What we need is a practical theology for conflict resolution designed to bring about not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. We can go beyond resolving conflicts to true, life-changing reconciliation with family members, coworkers, and fellow believers.
Bottom line: We need to respond to conflict in a biblical way.
