How do you handle conflict? Do you get defensive easily? Are you a bully about it? Or, perhaps you’re more of the silent treatment type when you’re hurt or upset? The reality is that none of us will ever be completely comfortable having to deal with the disagreements that arise in our lives, but conflict is the precursor to change, and it’s vitally important for moving us forward.
Proverbs 3:21-26 says “My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion. They will be life for you and an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way safely and your foot will not stumble when you lie down, you will not be afraid when you lie down. Sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster of ruin that overtakes the wicked for the Lord will be at your side and keep your foot from being snared.”
