Resolving Conflict God's Way: Leave It in God’s Hands
The Bible’s goal for us is to be Spirit-filled and fruit-bearing at all times - even in the midst of a conflict. While we have considered certain christian duties that we may undertake when we seek to resolve a conflict God’s way, there are no guaranteed good outcomes. Sometimes, having gone the extra mile, no amount of effort will appear to improve the situation. What do we do then?
