Title: Part 3 - Conflict
Date: August 26/27, 2017
Speaker: Steve Garcia
When we find ourselves in conflict with another person, we must be honest and humble with how we have contributed to the conflict. We will only have peace in the conflict when we see our piece of the conflict.
Passage: Matthew 7:3-5; Romans 12:18
- What is the silliest, most petty argument you remember getting into?
- Steve described two responses to conflict in his sermon. The attacker is the person who responds to conflict by placing responsibility on someone else. The avoider is the person who tries to ignore it. Which of these tendencies do you display in conflict?
- Resolving conflict is usually difficult and uncomfortable. What benefit is there to resolving conflict? How has your life been impacted by conflict resolution?
- What relationships in your life tend to create the most conflict? How are these conflicts generally resolved, if they are?
- In what ways does your pride try to prevent you from resolving conflicts in your life?
- Read Matthew 7:3-5. How have you contributed to the current conflicts you are experiencing in life?
- Did this message convict you of any unresolved conflict in your life? What steps can you take this week to admit your part, apologize, forgive, or pray toward resolution?
