RESOLVING CONFLICT - Part 2

1) Take the INITIATIVE.

2) Confess MY PART of the conflict

3) Listen for the HURT.

James 1:19 (NLT) …be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.

Romans 15:2 (TLB) …we must bear the “burden” of being considerate of the doubts and fears of others—of those who feel these things are wrong. Let’s please the other fellow, not ourselves, and do what is for his good and thus build him up in the Lord.
4) Consider their PERSPECTIVE.

Philippians 2:4 (NLT) Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Start noticing other peoples needs and stop needing other peoples notice.

Psalm 139:3 (NLT) You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do.




5) Tell the truth TACTFULLY.

Proverbs 12:18 (NIV) The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

You are never persuasive when you are abrasive.

Ephesians 4:29 (NCV) When you talk, do not say harmful things, but say what people need—words that will help others become stronger. Then what you say will do good to those who listen to you.
6) Fix the problem, not the BLAME.

Colossians 3:8 (NLT) But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language.

Romans 14:13 (NIV) Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister
7) Focus on reconciliation not resolution.

Reconciliation seeks to reestablish the relationship. Resolution seeks to resolve every issue.

Learning to be unified without having to be uniform.

Matthew 5:9 (NIV) Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

It’s always more rewarding to resolve the conflict than to dissolve the relationship.
