1. Think before you speak. “Be quick to listen, slow to speak” (James 1:19).

2. Reply at low decibels. “A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare” (Proverbs 15:1).

3. Seek to understand the other person. “Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage” (Philippians 2:4 The Message).

Conflict is not something to be feared. When handled properly, conflict is an opportunity for tremendous growth.
