Pastor James of the Jerusalem church pins down the source of all fights and shows us the only solution. Unless the conflict is over a moral difference, the core issue is always pride. Even with moral issues, we can still sin if we respond by fighting and degrading the other person, instead of simply acknowledging that we will not participate in evil. This practice destroys relationships and can carry over into our relationship with Jesus Christ. The solution? Submit yourself entirely to God, and trust him, whatever the results may be.
We’ll leave you with a verse from the old hymn “Blessed Assurance”: Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
