Most people prefer to avoid conflict. The majority of conflict should be avoided by not creating conflict in the first place. Speaking well of others or not speaking at all is always a good policy. However, conflict is inevitable. Conflict happens when two humans are involved. Conflict should not be ignored or allowed to be kept alive. Conflict generally doesn't resolve itself on its own. When conflict exists, honest conversations must also exist. If we go into the conversation with the mindset of "finding a resolution" and not "trying to be right", conflicts can be resolved.
Lord, help me to avoid making conflict and then when conflict exists, help me to have the courage to resolve it like a mature human being.
