It’s been said that 90 percent of conflict is rooted in misunderstanding.
If that’s the case, and it probably is, then conflict resolution is a matter of all parties sitting down and getting a good understanding of what happened!
Proverbs 13:15 says, “Good understanding gains favor, But the way of the unfaithful is hard.”
Good understanding and faithfulness are connected. Most conflicts arise because someone’s trust (faithfulness) has seemingly been violated.
We can give ourselves and others a great deal of favor in conflicts if we will simply sit down together to discover the misunderstanding and to re-establish trust!
