Conflict is pretty hard to avoid in life. If it weren't for other people, we might have a pretty peaceful existence... However, being alone still leaves me with myself and he often gets on my nerves, too! So the only real answer is getting beyond the conflict and experiencing reconciliation.
We're moving into the fourth chapter of Philippians this Sunday, August 9th, and Paul gets pretty specific as he finds an application for his previous teaching on humbly "thinking of others as better than yourself." (Phil. 2:3) And it's not just Paul who thinks unity is a big deal. God emphasizes it over and over throughout scripture. Why? That's what we're going to discuss on Sunday. I hope you can join us.
