Have you ever had that disagreement that lasted way longer than it should have? Probably most of your conflicts are that way in reality. Instead of letting something get out of hand, we must figure out how to reconcile peacefully. It’s time to go the second mile in quieting quarrels.
Proverbs 17:14 – Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out.
Proverbs 15:18 – A hot-tempered person starts fights; a cool-tempered person stops them.
- Do you want to be reconciled or do you want to be right?
- Do you want to hear or just be heard?
- Do you want to confess or just to confront?
